How to wear Saree

1. Petticoat

Find a petticoat that matches the colour of your saree exactly. If it’s lighter, your saree will also look a shade lighter. The same applies to a darker petticoat.


2 Saree Layout

Layout your saree and figure out which side in side and which is the outer. The Pallu of course will be the outer side and the other end.

The inner.

Hold the inner end of the saree in your left hand around your waist.


3. Pleats

Make sure the hem is touching the floor and tuck the inner end border into your petticoat. Pass the saree onto the front. Maintain the same height so that the hem is even. Keep the top edge level and tuck in a little to keep the saree place(Safety pin at this point) Start folding the pleats from right to left while holding the edge of the saree.


4. Tuck In

Hold all the pleats together and tuck them into the petticoat(make sure the length of the saree remain the same and the them is even safety pin the pleats to your petticoat).


5. Bring Around

5 Bring the saree around your body. Hold it in your right hand and pass over the left making sure the border is even.


6. Drape

Drape on your shoulder. Here, you can either let the border sit on your shoulder and let the rest fall casually. Or, following the pleat lines, create pleats on your shoulder and let the pallu fall in a thin strip.
