This is a lovely preloved chiffon 3pc sari in a deep aubergine colour.
The blouse is short sleeved front fastening with embellishment work on the back. The lining on the inside of one of the sleeves has been scorched with the iron however this will not be seen when worn. This has been let out of the seams to the maximum so as a result some of the outer chiffon has slipped its seams and will need some attention.
The sari is made of chiffon and very heavily embellished in a combination of beads and sequins in varying shapes and sizes. Pretty much all the sari is covered making it quite heavy, the whole outfit weighs just over 2 kilo.
This has been worn an overall is in good condition, it is a well-tailored sari that was bought for £225 new.
