This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I've been tied up with real life for quite awhile now...Ugh! But I have finally developed a sari which can have a border in the right places on the front and back drapes.

An Indian friend of mine told me that the back drape should only be about as long as the back of the knee, and I tried doing that, but while I am usually a stickler for authenicity, I think the back drape looks better when it is floor length, so I am leaving it that way.

As always, feel free to recolor, revise and post my meshes, as long as you give me credit for the original mesh.

Please DO NOT post my meshes at pay sites or The Sims Exchange. I have made occasional exceptions, but if you post on TSR or any other pay site, get permission first and link back to MTS2 for the mesh.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Thank you, and please keep making Indian-themed clothing. I use a lot of it in my game.

I think the styles of a Sari depend on the regan. Unlike america clothing in India is based on region. I am a nanny for an indian couple, and the grandma has her sari draped long in the back.

These are really nice. I've always thought saris were so beautiful. Now I can have some in my game. Thanks!

I'm a bit late in answering this, but....I have always loved the look of saris, I have Indian friends who wear both saris and shalwar kameez, and I lived in Afghanistan for 10 years and grew to love all sorts of eastern world things. I have not yet made meshes for Afghan clothing which is quite different from both Arab and Indian, but it is on my back burner. I recently attended an Afghan wedding in New York where many of the women wore their beautiful native costumes...unfortunately my camera battery ran out just before they came out dancing with candles, so I will have to rely on memory and my niece and granddaughters Afghan costumes. At least I am inspired to try it again.

Hey, I didn't know how to leave a comment, so this is a reply. Could you change it to make the sari in the Formal Wear? These saris are usually worn for functions. If you could, it'd be cool. Thanks!!! =D
