Simple patch work blouses are where you could use contrasting colors of the saree body and border to create an effect. Else if you are making a neutral blouse go with colors like gold, copper and silver so you can wear these blouses with other sarees as well.  If you want to have a blouse with more bling but do not have the time to get embroidery done, well go and buy pre embroidered patches. Add the patch to your blouse and voila! Your blouse has the bling that you wanted. For a simple everyday look try patches of Kalamkari. Use the unique Kalamkari print as an added patch in your plain blouses to enhance the beauty of it. This adds to the glam without involving any bling.
