How to Tie a Sari
 
 

Indian women’s main garment of wear is a Sari.  It is composed of at least five yards of synthetic material wrapped round and tapering down the lower part of the body, one end of which is slung

round the shoulders over a tightly-fitting bodice of cotton or silk
 

At least part of the secret of the sari are the "underneath" garments - a waist -to- floor length petticoat,

tied tightly at the waist by a drawstring and a tight fitting blouse that ends just below the bust.
 
 
 

Starting at the navel, tuck the plain end of the sari into the petticoat for one complete turn from right to left. Make sure that the lower end of the sari touches the floor.

Beginning from the tucked-in end start making pleats in the sari, about 5 inches deep. Make about 7 to 10 pleats and hold them up together so that they fall straight and even.

Tuck the pleats into the waist slightly to the left of the navel, and make sure that they are turned towards the left.

Drape the remaining fabric around yourself once more left to right, and bring it up under the right arm and over the left shoulder so that it falls to about the level of the knees.

The end portion thus draped is the pallav, and can be prevented from slipping off by fixing it at the shoulder to the blouse with a small safety pin.
