6 Easy Steps to Learn Bengali Style Saree Draping
- Let’s start with tucking the Saree end from the right side of the waist and until it completes one full round back to the right side.
- Then tuck the Saree across from right side of the waist to left side and then, the reverse from left to right.
- Repeat the step 2 times.
- Now make pallu pleats and place it on the left shoulder such that it makes a deep U in the front.
- Now pick a pallu corner and tie a trinket to it – the pack of keys or an antique silver keyholder.
- Bring the pallu corner to the front under the right hand and place it on your right shoulder.
Tips & Tricks
- Always wear this Saree without a fall lining.
- Wear your heels beforehand to get the right length of Saree at the ankle.
- Remember to tie a key ring or trinket to the pallu end.
- Keep safety pins close for quick pin-ups.
- Be ready with basic make-up and save time for touch-ups later.
