Tips and Tricks on Saree Blouse Design Back With Buttons

Although the buttons are at the back you do not necessarily need to have the blouse opening at the back. You can use show buttons but have the opening either at the front or the side. This way the buttons will have a neater look without gaps showing skin. However, I want you to remember that if the saree is transparent then try to avoid giving blouse opening in the front as it looks clumsy. Instead have the opening on the side with a conceal zipper. This was you can have show buttons for decor purpose at the back without having them actually open.
