Bringing Back Styles From The Past

Girls born prior to the 90s would surely recognise the humble Pavadai-Dhavani. This outfit, also popularly known as half-saree was the default outfit young girls wore to school and even college. The outfit consists of three pieces – the blouse which is similar to the one worn with sarees, the skirt or pavadai tied around the waist and finally the dhavani worn tucked one end at the skirt and draped on the right shoulder. It’s close cousins from other parts of India include ghagra, lehengas and even chaniya choli. The only difference between these styles lie in the way the dupatta is draped as well as the base material. While the skirts down South were popularly made from silks and cottons with woven motifs, the counterparts from the North were replete with embroidery, block-prints and applique work. These outfits were worn by women till marriage. Prized for their convenience and variety, young women would experiment with various styles of skirts and blouses and sometimes even the dhavani. For instance, when chintz first hit the market, chintz blouses and skirts weren’t uncommon. Young girls would patiently sew borders on to the dhavani or embroider over them. In the last few decades, these outfits have gone out of Vogue.
