Easy Step by Step to Drape Indo Western Style Saree

  1. Take one end of the Saree, make 6-7 pleats and tuck it in the centre facing left.
  2. Tuck such that the remaining length of the Saree is to your left and emerges from the inner most pleat.
  3. Ensure the Saree length falls just an inch short of the floor.
  4. Tuck Saree towards left measuring your span width. You can even tuck the Saree half way around the back.
  5. Now, pick the other end of the Saree, make pallu pleats.
  6. Bring the pleats from around the back to the front and place it over the left shoulder.
  7. Leave the Saree loose so that it makes a deep U on the right side of the waist.
  8. Now, pin the pallu pleats neatly on the shoulder.
