How to wear a Sari?
Sorry…I was typing too loud. 🙂 Greetings fellow on lookers! :-p A request was made by a good friend of mine and I thought…hey why not? [Lol] Personally, I feel the garments are absolutely beautiful! I really love the variety in color, texture, and style! Cultures are a wonderful thing that I respect and adore so much. So on that note, today I will be sharing something I learned in 12 simple steps. ^_^
Be sure to have a fitted shirt of some sort for underneath. The heels/shoes you wear play a big role in how the saree falls, and how ever much coverage you may want or need. Hold the inner end of the saree with your left hand.
Making sure the saree is at floor level, tuck the top border of the inner end into the petticoat.
Then pass the saree around to the front maintaining the same height.
Keep the top edge leveled and tuck it in a little to keep the saree firm.
Start folding the pleats from the right holding, then tuck the edge of the saree.
Hold the pleats together and adjust the height so that the bottom edge is at floor level.
Tuck the pleats into the petticoat. The pleats should fall straight.
Bring the saree around.
Hold it in your right hand and pass it to your left, arranging the border evenly.
Repeat step 9.
Drape on your left shoulder allowing the end piece to fall casually.
