The pleats and the flair add to the elegance and the style quotient.To get this style of drape, start wearing the saree in the usual way by starting to tuck the saree from right and completing one full round. Select The length of the pallu and put it on the shoulder as we take the seedha palla (left waist to right shoulder) leaving a good length for the pleats. Now divide the pleats portion into two halves to make the pleats and pin it up at the centre. Make small pleats with each half and tuck them it. The pleats on each side must be facing inside towards the centre in order to give the flair.

ghagra drape#3

 

The Ghagra drape is very simple yet beautiful! This drape requires more pleats and hence we first select the length of saree for the pleats.

Start by tucking the saree on to the left waist to right waist in anti-clockwise direction (half circle only). Make as many small pleats as possible leaving some length for the pallu. The length of the pallu will and needs to be short. Make the pleats and divide them into 2 sections facing outwards and tuck them in. Drape the remaining length left for the pallu from left waist onto the right shoulder and pin/tuck the end of the pallu at the front. And you are ready with your Ghagra!

curtain drape #1 curtain drape#2 curtain drape#3

The Curtain drape portrays a strong outgoing personality. To get this style fold the entire saree into 5-6 inch wide pleats across the length. Put the pleats across the neck like a stole and pin both the halves at the centre. Now hold the outer ends of each side and cover the waist portion by rolling it like a curtain. Pin both the ends behind together. If either of the sides is longer than the other, you can get it on the side as a falling pallu.

This style helps in giving one a slim look with a curvy waistline. Looks simple yet stylish. The saree being so smooth and with a falling texture could be drapped and twisted easily. Enjoyed draping it in this style. Wear the saree normally, make the pleats, continue to wrap around the waist  and then collect the entire width as a bunch, twist it and then again cover the circle to get the pallu on the shoulder. The pallu length get shorten and is uneven towards the end.

This style gives a slimmer hip part and waist line.

This experience of draping the sarees in different style is really exciting and challenging. To make the look smart and elegent was mind freaking. Tried various styles out of which some looked convincing. This orange saree could be drapped in a stylish and yet traditional way. This falling pallu style came in automatically. Its a mix of bengali and straight pallu style.
The pleats are of the straight Gujarati style while the pallu can be taken from back ‘- to shoulder- to front in the vertically falling direction.
Its very simple.
