How to Wear a Saree (Sari)

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. ^_^

Step 1:

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.

Step 2:

Making sure the saree is at floor level, tuck the top border of the inner end into the petticoat.

Step 3:

Then pass the saree around to the front maintaining the same height.

Step 4:

Keep the top edge leveled and tuck it in a little to keep the saree firm.

Step 5:

Start folding the pleats from the right holding, then tuck the edge of the saree.

Step 6:

Hold the pleats together and adjust the height so that the bottom edge is at floor level.

Step 7:

Tuck the pleats into the petticoat. The pleats should fall straight.

Step 8:

Bring the saree around.

Step 9:

Hold it in your right hand and pass it to your left, arranging the border evenly.

Step 10-11:

Repeat step 9.

Step 12:

Drape on your left shoulder allowing the end piece to fall casually.
