It is best to use thick bro­cade for the blouse it­self.

Use a translu­cent Chan­deri with a nar­row zari bor­der for the sleeves.

Al­ter­na­tively, a bodice of Chan­deri fab­ric can be worn over which the sleeve­less corset is lay­ered. Make the sleeves in bro­cade, so you could wear a fully bro­cade blouse with a light gather or puff at the sleeves.

De­sign two small pock­ets in front which al­low you to carry a hand­ker­chief or a small box of mouth fresh­ener.

Trans­form the look of a blouse by just chang­ing the but­tons. But­tons cov­ered with dif­fer­ent colours of bro­cade can be fas­tened to rib­bons, mak­ing a blouse look com­pletely dif­fer­ent.

Layer your blouse with a fit­ted vel­vet coat which will keep you warmer than a shawl.

The waist­coat can also have zardozi em­broi­dery on the col­lar.
