How to Drape a Saree: Detailed Step, by Step Instructions

Wrapping a saree can be deemed an art form on its own. While various regional draping styles exist we will concentrate on the Nivi style known for its popularity and versatility. Here's a guide, on how to drape a saree: 

Step 1: Getting Ready

Begin by wearing a fitted blouse and matching petticoat.

Start by tucking the end of the saree into the petticoat at your waist and wrapping it around once.

Ensure that the decorative end (pallu) is longer and falls over your shoulder.

Step 2: Creating Pleats

Fold the saree fabric neatly to form pleats making sure they all align in one direction.

Hold the pleats together. Secure them by tucking into the petticoat slightly left of your navel.

Step 3; Styling the Pallu

Drape the pallu over your shoulder allowing it to cascade gracefully.

You can fasten it with a pin. Leave it flowing freely based on your preference.
