The foundation garments for the Sari is the waist to floor length petticoat tied tightly at the waist by a drawstring (no elastic) and a tight fitting blouse that ends at the midriff.

1. Starting at the navel, tuck in 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.

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

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

4. 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.

5. 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.

Sarees are sold in the net and delivered at Home for all occasions and all seasons.

Westerners are curious and they have a flair for this because it is a blend of Tradition and Fashion tailoring to the every day changing Dress mania and world of outfits.
