This is the simplest DIY saree method. You can transform a plain fabic into a beautiful designer saree by adding latest saree borders that are available in stores. Buy a plain saree fabric and choose a border that contrasts with the color of your saree. You may add this border to the sleeve of your blouse too.

A variety of lace and designer borders are available in local stores and online.
2. Embroidery / Embellishments
Another simple DIY saree method is to brighten a plain saree fabric with some embroidery or embellishments like zardosi work, mirror work or kundan work. There are several ways to embellish your sarees. Readymade embroidery patches are also available in the market and these look really chic. Simply buy a plain saree fabric of your choice and glue kundans or mirrors or sequins along the saree borders or all over the saree. Your DIY designer saree is ready!!
Any plain saree can be converted into a designer piece by adding a sequins border. You can also get a sequins blouse to go with this. Every woman should have a black, silver and a golden sequins blouse in her wardrobe. These can be paired with multiple sarees and they transform the look completely.
