How to Make Pattern for Sari Blouse. An Indian sari blouse can be made from a commercial pattern, tailored to fit an individual’s personal measurements. Also known as a choli, this blouse covers the upper arms and the upper chest but there are variations.  The style depends on individual taste; it may have long or short sleeves or sleeveless and the blouse length can vary from very short to waist length with varieties of necklines and back patterns. It should fit tightly at the lower edge.

The blouse colour may either match the colour of the sari or be in contrast colour. All sari blouses should be created with a full opening either in the front or in the back. This can be zipped or hooked with buttons. As more and more women are becoming fashion conscious, more and more variations in the blouse are coming up. It is the age of change and the sari blouse is the latest to get a makeover at the hands of designers, tailors and customers.
