Elbow length sleeve designs are everyone's favourite now! Blouses with sleeve till the elbows were the fashion on the 90's. This has re-emerged with the sleeves full of embellishments or embroidery. This makes the upper hand look thinner. This design on a silk saree blouse will be a perfect one for your Muhurtham. For all those who are looking for some sleeve patterns, check out these lovely sleeve patterns by Sruthi Kannath! 


Peach: If you are fan of vintage, then florals make up to a pretty pattern in a bridal blouse. Peach and coral shades have recently been  favourite colours to most of us, here, we have used only pearls, zari in gold and teal with a touch of sequins to complete the vintage look.

Yellow: So you love a combination of modern and tradition? Try a geometric pattern with kundan design. Honeycomb pattern is very tricky to mix with a traditional design. Here we have used an armlet pattern with traditional kundan stones in shades of emerald green and ruby red. 

Here, the colour plays a key role when you team it up with a saree. To avoid making the look too simple, try different shades of threadwork combined with golden beads. For the back neckline, you can go for the basic pot-neck, which defines the embroidery around the neckline.  

Fan of jewellery pattern on your blouses? Here is an intricate antique neck pattern that has only kundan and zardosi embellished. The sleeve has the paisley motif inspired from the saree. The tiny little golden pearls gives a finishing touch to the motif inspired from temple jewellery that the bride wore on her wedding.

When they want a trendy blouse done for a saree with traditional pattern, they realize that the blouse piece with the saree is either not stylish enough, or is lesser in measurement than required for the blouse design chosen by them. So here, we have gone for a complete contrast colour, a classic combination that you can never go wrong with. – rustic red along with parrot green. We have used sequins along with zardosi and embellished with golden pearls. Also, explore your bridal blouses with different necklines like boat, Pot and collar. 

Blouse designs are one of the most essential factors in making or breaking your whole outfit, so choose the perfect one for yourself. The bright yellow colour complements with any shades of pink, peach saree. Here, its combination of a variety of materials such as zardosi, stones, pearls, zari – all put together in a geometric style. 

It is important to select suitable saree blouse designs and patterns that complements the saree as well as your personality. You can customize your wedding saree blouse with Maggam work, kundan work, zardosi work, stone work, thread embroidery etc to create rich look. Here – the intricacy is obtained through zari and pearls, thus subduing the bright colour of the blouse to a golden shade.

Green: For a cool twist, stay away from the paisley and temples prints, and pick something modern instead. If you think border on the sleeve is boring, create a border of your choice – we have created a peacock with a 3 d effect. 

Ink Blue: Most Kanchee sarees come with contrast blouses these days, but in case yours didn’t, pick a silk blouse in a contrasting color. Make sure the colors are bold so they photograph well. You can even pick the color to match your favorite piece of jewelry. If the saree has bold and bigger motifs, go for small intricate design on your blouse. Use embroidery materials that will not look monotonous. 

White: You can never go wrong with white. Wear a white blouse with heavy embroidery running across the sleeve and neckline to dress up for the much awaited occasion. Stone and pearl work neckline adds sparkle to the blouse. Here, we have tried a unique for the full sleeve choli, by embellishing it with only pearl and stone work- making it look like bangles. 

A combination that is making waves among the brides – Peach and yellow is now a recent favourite. Here, inspired from geometric shapes, we have created a pattern using only cut-beads, pearls, stones and sequins.
