Step 1:

  • Slightly raise the remaining portion of the Sari on your back, bringing it up under the right arm and over the left shoulder so that the end of the Sari falls to about the level of your knees.
  • The end portion thus draped, from the left shoulder onwards, is called the Pallav or the Pallu, and can be prevented from slipping off the shoulder, by fastening it at the shoulder to the blouse with a small safety pin.

Step 2:

  • Get hold of the decorative end of the saree (pallu) and pleat the top edges of the pallu.
  • Adjust the pleats until they are even and raise the pleated pallu. Bring it under your right arm and place it over your left shoulder.
  • Let the end of the saree fall below your knees.
  • You can even unfold the pleats and drape the pallu over the shoulder if you want the pallu to fall elegantly over your arm.
  • Secure the pallu with a safety pin from the inside of the blouse and then you are as beautiful as a star! TIPS: Adorn the saree with a beautiful brooch and you will look classy.
