And after wearing them for years, our moms are even bored wearing these sarees again and again. In addition, the sarees lie in the closet for years and occupy space, in the hope that we may wear them someday. Instead, this time you sort out some of your favorite ones and give them a fancy make-over! There are always great ways to reuse and revamp old sarees into trendy chic outfits.
