How to reuse your anarkali and convert it into a lehenga!!

Hi girls. So i am back with a useful post for all of you. Well for men it is very easy to repeat their clothes thousand times (well they dont have much options and look the same always ..hehe) but for us girls repetition is like a big nooooooo. Well we can repeat a dress maximum 3 or 4 times (to be precise once on mummy’s side, once on papa’s side, once among friends and that’s it …hehe). So its a real pain to buy an expensive anarkali suit and then see it lying in the cupboard just like that. So here i want to share with all of you how i reused my anarkali suit and gave it a complete new look by converting it into a gorgeous lehenga.

Below is the pic of my anarkali suit which i wore few times in different parties.

In the anarkali there are already lot of kalis which are required in a lehanga. So what we can do is we can give the anarkali to a tailor and tell him to stitch it into a lehanga. My tailor just took 300 rs for this and voila i got a brand new lehenga. Now you can mix and match this lehenga with a chunni and blouse which is available with you. Below are pics where i mixed and match my lehanga with different blouses and chunnis.

So here’s how you can create multiple looks with the same lehenga and reuse you anarkali wisely. Well i keep inventing new ways to reuse my dresses as there’s wedding season every year and we girls don’t want to repeat (hi 5 for that 😛 ).

Well hope you found this post useful. Do share your views and comments.


    • thanks Scarlett..nice to know that u found this article useful..we have so many anarkalis which we never wear again because we can't repeat much (hehe) so i thought i would share my idea with you guys to convert it into a lehanga

  1. I hv knee length anarkali…hw to cnvrt tht into lehenga??? Length is short:(
    Can u pls gv me some ideas fr my knee length anarkali???

    • Hi Vridhi. Knee length anarkali can be tricky. Show me the picture of the anarkali suit so that I can suggest accordingly. You can message me on my instagram account 🙂

  2. Hi megha… I really like ur lehenga but if you can give little bit details about its stitching and laces it would more useful….

    • HI Renuka. Just attached a fabric at the belt area. The bottom lace is the part of the suit.
