Owlfit of the Week

This week Little Owl is living it up in her sari! I bought this beautiful sari on our last night in India so she never got the chance to wear it before we came home.  The sari came ready made with a matching blouse.  Baby saris cheat a little as rather than being one long piece of fabric, they are sewn ready to wear!  The skirt part has a draw string cord so it can be tightened round the waist and the pleats are sewn into this.  The pleats have been sewn into the pallu (the pretty bit that hangs off the shoulder) meaning all you need to do is wrap it round and pin it to the shoulder of the blouse.  Sounds complicated?  Its dead easy if you know how to tie a sari but really isn't too difficult even if you don't.

For anyone traveling to Sangam or Pune, the shop where I bought this sari (and several other children's outfits) is in the Laxmi Road area.  The shop is on Shanipa Mandai Road, which runs from Phule Market to the Black Palace, parallel to Tulshibaug and Laxmi Road.  Its on the same side of the road as the Tulshibaug Temple near the junction with Bajirao Road.  This google map might help, its very near where Cympac Software Solutions Pvt Ltd is labelled!

Now we just need to find some occasions to wear this - it wasn't overly practical at the playground!
