How to drape paithani saree?

Draping a Paithani saree is similar to draping any other traditional saree, with a few minor differences. Here are the steps to drape a Paithani saree:

Step 1: Choose your saree and petticoat: Pick a matching petticoat and blouse for your saree.

Step 2: Tuck in the petticoat: Wear the petticoat and tuck in the loose end securely at your waist.

Step 3: Drape the saree: Take the Paithani saree and tuck in the upper end of the saree into the petticoat on the right side of your waist, leaving the other end of the saree free.

Step 4: Make pleats: Make around 7-8 pleats of the saree in the front, facing left. Ensure that the pleats are of equal width and neatly arranged.

Step 5: Tuck in the pleats: Tuck in the pleats into the waistband of your petticoat and let the remaining loose end of the saree fall behind.

Step 6: Drape the pallu: Now, take the remaining end of the saree (pallu) and bring it over your left shoulder from behind. Let it fall over your front in a way that it covers your torso.

Step 7: Secure the pallu: Take the pallu and bring it around your back, over your right shoulder, and let it hang loose.

Step 8: Adjust the saree: Adjust the pleats and the pallu as per your liking and ensure that they are neat and in place.

Step 9: Accessorize: Complete your look by wearing traditional jewelry and high heels.

And that's it! You're now ready to flaunt your Paithani saree with style and elegance.
