The sari is a traditional female garment from the Indian subcontinent. History of sari-like drapery can be traced back to the times of the Indus Valley Civilisation, which flourished during 2800-1800 BC, and modern sari’s origins can be dated back to the 1st century BC, making this garment one of the very few clothing to have survived 2k years of history.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you, Parvati and Padma Patil of Hogwarts, as they SHOULD have appeared at the Yule Ball ❄️ The Yule Ball scene in Harry Potter and the Goblet or Fire was our girls’ time to shine, but alas, they had to wear those vile orange and pink lengha things. They deserved so much better, so here is my version. According to the Goblet or Fire book, Parvati wore “robes of shocking pink,” and Padma wore “robes of bright turquoise” ….not those tragic, afterthought-looking outfits we ultimately saw on screen. ALSO JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE TWINS DOESN’T MEAN THEY NEED TO WEAR THE SAME DAMN OUTFIT #justiceforthepatilsisters #foreversalty
