Different ways of wearing a Sari


This style of sari draping is common to the state of Andhra Pradesh. It is also the most popular style of sari draping. In this style of sari draping, one end of the sari is neatly tucked into the band of the petticoat on the waist. After wrapping the sari cloth around the waist once more, the sari is neatly folded into pleats, which are then tucked into the waistband of the petticoat just below the navel. Then after wrapping it around the body one more time, the other decorative end of the sari also called the "pallu" comes diagonally in front of the torso and draped over the left shoulder.

STEP 1

1. A waist - to - floor length petticoat tied tightly at the waist by a drawstring.
2. A tight fitting blouse that ends just below the bust.

STEP 2

After step one you take the sari and tuck the plain end of the sari into the petticoat for one complete turn from right to left. Make sure that the lower end of the sari touches the floor.

STEP 3

Beginning from the tucked-in end start making pleats in the sari, about 5 inches deep.

STEP 4

Make about 7 to 10 pleats and hold them up together so that they fall straight and even.

STEP 5

Tuck the pleats into the waist slightly to the left of the navel, and make sure that they are turned towards the left.
After this you take the sari and tuck the plain end of the sari into the petticoat for one complete turn from right to left. Make sure that the lower end of the sari touches the floor.

STEP 6

The end portion thus draped is the pallu, and can be prevented from slipping off by fixing it at the shoulder to the blouse with a small safety pin.
You are now draped in a sari . Now stand before the mirror and get enchanted by the grace you exude.
