From Casual to Couture: Readymade Blouses Online for Every Occasion

Are you getting ready for a special occasion and are not quite sure if you should buy readymade saree blouses or have one sewn especially for you? Let’s explore both options to help you decide.

But first, what is a saree blouse?

A saree blouse (also known as a choli) is the upper garment that is worn with the traditional Indian saree. The traditional blouse is typically tailored to fit snugly to accentuate the wearer's figure. It covers the upper body and is usually cropped, ending just below the bust, though longer styles are also available.

The blouse is a critical part of the saree outfit, along with the saree itself and the petticoat worn underneath. This combination provides a versatile outfit that can be styled in many different ways for various occasions, from casual to formal.

Modern saree blouses come in a variety of designs, colors, and fabrics to complement the saree. They can be simple and unadorned for everyday wear, or they can be intricately decorated with embroidery, sequins, or beadwork for special occasions.

The design of a saree blouse can significantly affect the overall look of the saree. The neck and back designs vary widely, from high necks to plunging necklines and from full-coverage backs to backless designs. The sleeves can also vary, from sleeveless to short sleeves, cap sleeves, elbow-length sleeves, or even full-length sleeves.

Custom saree blouse vs. readymade blouse online

Now let’s answer the question you came here for: Should you have your blouse custom-made by a seamstress, or should you buy a readymade blouse online? There is no right and wrong answer, but it’s important to understand the pros and cons of each choice.

Custom blouses take at least two weeks to finish—and usually much longer for intricate designs. You have to come back for refitting at least once throughout the process. While custom blouses might be a good idea for ultra-special occasions, they’re usually impractical for most others. With the wide range of modern and contemporary saree blouses these days—from cotton blouses to silk blouses—it’s easier to shop online for something that’s already done and ready to wear.

Ready-made saree blouses are pre-stitched blouses that can be worn with sarees without the need for any additional tailoring. They come in a variety of sizes, designs, fabrics, and colors to match different sarees and styles. These blouses are often embellished with various types of embroidery, sequins, beadwork, or other decorative features. They can have various neck and back designs, and they might have short sleeves, long sleeves, cap sleeves, or be sleeveless. The options are endless—from casual to couture—and you will surely find something you like here at Chiro’s By Jigyasa.

The biggest advantage of choosing a ready-made saree blouse is, of course, convenience. They're ready to wear right off the shelf, which saves time and effort, especially for those who need a blouse quickly.
