Trying to pick up the right saree to wear at different party or wedding occasions, isn’t much sorted for women, they never find it easier to pick the right saree to drape for occasions like, weddings, parties or the casually, etc.
Take the saree end from the top edge, tuck it in the petticoat starting from the right side of your waist across your left waist.
From the left hand bring the drape around your waist from the back to the centre front tucking it in.
Now you will need to make 6-8 of 5-6 inches pleats of the remaining drape at the centre and tuck it in the petticoat, facing pleats to the left.
Bring the open drape across your back to your front from the right side, without tucking it. You can pin up the pleats at the centre for it to be in centre position and tuck the drape edge till your left side waist.
Now hold up the width (pallu) section and make pleats in complete width in 5-6 inches, making sure the border falls on the first pleat to drape it on shoulder.
Hold the pleats in vertical and bring the drape fall from beneath the right armhole, pulling it up towards and across your left shoulder.
Place the pleats properly on your left shoulder by keeping at least a metre length fall down from the shoulder point, and pin it in place to fix it.
These are few steps you should follow to wear the Marathi Style Saree correctly-
Take around one meter fabric in your hand and loop it around your back, while the rest of the length lies on your right. The bordered edges of the fabric are to be tied securely at the waist.
Gather your pallu and bring it over to the front from the back, and fix it over the left side of your shoulder, like for any normal saree style. In the next step, we’ll take care of the loose length that needs to be out of the way.
Start pleating with the loose fabric! Make 4-inch pleats. Settle in on around 8 to 9 pleats. Tuck these in at the navel.
Thee pleats now need to be taken from between the legs to be tucked in at the back. There’ll be a double borderline at the back.
The last step is to drape the pallu elegantly. Take it from the back to cover the shoulder and then it has to be strategically tucked in at the waist on the left side.
A 6 yard saree will do for this style. Take 1 meter of the fabric, take it around your frame rest and tie a knot at the centre at your waist.
Take shorter length of fabric and make pleats. Take it between the legs and tuck only one edge of the pleats at the back. The rest of the width should be taken to the left side, and the last pleat should be tucked at the front.
The saree at the front should be bunched again and taken at the back, between the legs. The border edge at the back could be tucked in and the rest of the saree should be brought to the front.
Drape pallu over left shoulder and drape it across the front from the right so that it could be tucked at the waist. The borders on the right and left side of the saree should be at the same length. And you’re done!
