Steps by Steps on how to drape a Saree.

Saree is the traditional Indian and one of the most elegant attire a woman can wear. Saree is a one piece material which fits all – fat or thin, short or tall and also is worn on any occasion.

There are numerous ways of draping sarees in styles.

Before starting to wear a saree, you must see to it that you have the following items ready:

  1. A PETTICOAT (LONG UNDER SKIRT FROM WAIST TO ANKLES)
  2. BLOUSE – ESSENTIAL UNDER GARMENTS FOR THE SAREE

The petticoat should be tied tightly at the waist by a drawstring.

Given below  is a step by step instructions on how to wear a saree. Wearing a saree is not very difficult though it may seem so.  These simple step by step instructions will help you wear saree with graceful elegance.

 Below is a detailed explanation of a basic style.

STEP 1
Unfold the saree to its full length. Adjust the height up to your navel, wrap the saree around the waistline comfortably and tuck the top edge of the saree into your petticoat. Please make sure that you wear your high heel shoes or sandals after  wearing your petticoat.

STEP 2
Take the top end of your saree in your right hand and circle it around your waist till you come to the front. Make sure you maintain the same height as you wrap it around the waistline. Now tuck the top edge of the saree inside the petticoat.

STEP 3
You are now ready for pleating the saree in the front. Use your right hand for pleating while your left hand holds tight the remaining length of the saree.

STEP 4
Your middle finger and index will be slipping to and from while your little finger and ring finger will steady your right thumb. Make 8 to 10 pleats to fit your requirements.

STEP 5
When you have pleated uniformly, hold the pleats together and adjust the height.

STEP 6
Tuck the pleats neatly inside your petticoat and smoothen them. The pleats should fall straight and even.

Step 7
Take the remaining length and pass it on to your left, gently round your waistline and bring it under your right arm.

STEP 8
Pull over the drape to tighten around the hips and waist

STEP 9
Take the saree over your left arm covering roughly the portion between your bust-line and knees.

Now, you will have another detailed explanation of a different style, that is, putting your “Pallu” in front”

Front Pallu is another option to look elegant and gorgeous.  Normally when you choose this option, your  “Pallu” should be nice with work or large border.

To achieve this style, you just wear your saree as a traditional one, then take the “Pallu” part and let it go around you under your hands.  You can, at this point, secure it with pins to keep it in place. Now do some pleats with the “Pallu” and let it go under your left hand and bring it on your right shoulder. Once on your shoulder, again you can secure with a safety pin.

Front “Pallu” gives a stylish and sexy look!!

GOOD LUCK!! Please leave a comment.

    There is no other garment which can be draped in as many styles as the saree and with each style comes a look that is unique. It’s an incredibly flexible piece of clothing that you can style however you want.
