Drape a saree


Step 1 : First of all put on a saree-petticoat and tie it comfortably tight around the waist or just 3-4 inches below (for hipster look).Then take the inner end of the saree and starting from the left side three-fourths across the front-waist tuck the upper edge into the petticoat. See that the lower edge of the saree is leveled with the ground.
Step 2 : Now take the loose end of the saree around the back & tuck smoothly into the petticoat.

Step 3 : Bring the saree forward from the right hand side and fold into pleats (7 to 10) the last one a little broader than the rest and pulled up slightly (this gives a neat, smooth look) and tuck them neatly and flat into the petticoat. Again the lower end of the saree should be leveled with the ground.
Step 4 : How much to leave for the pallu (the cascading end at the back) depends on the length that suits you best. Pull the over drape to tighten around the hips and waist, take it up and place over your left shoulder in neat folds.
Step 5 : And there you are! An elegantly draped saree that flatters your figure!
