Ribbon work in Black Chiffon Saree

The store bought garden silk saree was hanging in my wardrobe. I was thinking about how to make the black saree look more beautiful with my handiworks. Suddenly I remembered my store bought ribbons, pearl cotton green threads, three coloured stones from "Orange" and attempted for the first time ribbon work saree. It took for me three months to finish this, but it was worth the effort.
