Blouse designs: In the olden times, A blouse was the favorite outfit of women, children, peasants, and workmen. Hanging loosely over the wearer’s body, it was gathered at the waist or hips. Until the late 18th century, it was considered just a practical piece to cover the modesty. It had not gained a place as a fashion statement till then. But sometimes after that period, from a dull and boring outfit, it turned into an essential practical wear for working women.

Known as a choli, this midriff-baring upper garment in the Indian sari costume that is worn in India, southern Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and other countries have different names like चोली (Hindi), चोळी (Marathi), ரவிக்கை (Tamil), రవికె (Telugu), ರವಿಕೆ(Kannada). As found in the ancient literature and scriptures, the blouse evolved during the ancient Stanapatta period, and the Early cholis were covered the front with tie ups at the back. The evolving times brought many changes in this garment and designers started to experiment with the cuts, fabrics and manners of the blouse to lend a unique style to today’s well-educated and well-traveled women.

The choli is mostly made from the thick fabric. While cotton or a terry-cot or silk materials are considered an ideal choice for daily wear, one can find blouses made from georgette, chiffon, crepe, brocade, velvet etc.
