HOW TO WEAR A SAREE
 
 
Step 1Start with the Inner Edge(least patterned plain end) of the Saree, with the Fall(lined border) falling along the inside of the bottom edge. Tuck the Inner Edgeinto the waistband of the Petticoat slightly to the right side, with the rest of thesaree wrapping round to the left. The amount you tuck in depends on how tall orshort you are or how long you want to wear the saree.Step 2Measure the length of the Pallu (the fanciest patterned end of the saree that fallson the outside so that the design can be seen). This will be on the other end of theSaree from the end you have just tucked in. Take this measured Pallu Length(approx. 1 metre) and take it behind you from your left and forward again fromyour right.Step 3Take the Pallu that you have just brought forward from your right, and fling it over your left shoulder for the time being, so it is out of the way. This is done tosee how much of the Saree should be pleated into the waistband. The Saree nowleft in front of you is pleated to tuck into the waistband.Step 4Pleat the remaining Saree into five to six inch wide pleats.
 
Step 5Hold all the pleats together, making sure the bottom end is level with the rest of the Saree all round.
 
 
Step 6Tuck this bundle of pleats in one movement into the waistband of the petticoat,thus securing it.Step 7The Pallu of the Saree can now be arranged to suit your own style. The stylenormally and most commonly used is flinging the Pallu over the left shoulder orpleating it and pinning it to the left shoulder, so that the Pallu can swing open at the back. Two of the most popular methods of draping the Pallu are shownbelow.
