    Hassle free ways to drape a sari

    Hassle free ways to drape a sari

    As the six yards continue to remain a hot favourite among women, here are a few hassle-free ways to drape a sari.

    The lungi drape
    This drape works best if the pallav has rich work n The sari must be a regular drape.

    - Give about seven-eight pleats.
    - Instead of taking the pallav over the shoulder, drape it around again. The work on the pallav thus, gets highlighted, by appearing up front.

    The choker drape
    This drape works best if the blouse has work on it and the pleats too have a distinguishing
    feature.

    - The sari must be draped as usual.
    - Give about seven-eight pleats.
    - Instead of taking the pallav under your right arm, raise it to the left shoulder.
    - Wear it like a dupatta with a salwar kameez. The work on the blouse and pleat makes the sari look grand.

    The knot drape
    This drape works best if the blouse has work (zardosi) and the sari has stones or kundan work in the front.

    - The sari must be draped as usual.
    - Give few pleats — upto five
    - Instead of taking the pallav to your shoulder, knot it on the left side of the waist and pin it such that the knot rests on your left hipbone.
    - Take the rest of the pallav, loosely over your right shoulder (leaving a nice curve of the pallav along the back) and pin up on essential points to the blouse and petticoat to keep saree intact throughout the function. The work on the blouse and sari works wonders for anyone sporting such saris.

    The wrist-pin drape
    This drape works best if the sari pallav has a nice zardosi border.

    - The saree must be draped as usual.
    - Give about seven-eight pleats.
    - Take the pallav under your right arm and over the left shoulder.
    - Pull your sari to the right, and pin-up the end of the pallav to your right wrist.

    The slit sari drape
    This sari is a stitched one. It has its pleats stitched together and there's a slit in the saree. The slit is bordered with the border on the pallav.

    - The saree must be draped as usual (the pleats are already stitched).
    - Take the pallav under your right arm and over the left shoulder. The sari is made to fit without too much effort.
