A slightly retro look,  this style is most simple.  Just pleat the pallu slim and hang it around the neck like a pallu. The look is complimented by an ikat crop top as the blouse and accessorized with a black metal head gear.

A trendy get up is ready in minutes!

A Bharatanatyam dancer cannot go wrong with this.  This is called the ‘half saree’.  The saree is folded along the length so that both borders comes in the front and sari ends above knees.  Saree is worn on pajama or slacks. And pallu is wound around the waist. Dancing is very convenient and easy in half saree.

This one is a ornamental get up and more for delicate show.  The saree has been bandaged around the body so that it comes like bangles and the pallu is thinly layer pleated in the front. This reminds of the way Kimono is wrapped around the body.

The saree is drape in a way to resemble the front cut gown. The colour combination falls very beautifully. The pleats are on the side of the waist and pinned the broad border of the pallu vertically pinned and hanged from the neckline to the front.

The get up is very convenient and one can literally run about.

My parents loved this one! The saree is gracefully pleated from low neck, the pallu falling at along the length. The saree becomes a dress! No need to wear a petticoat as it will show. The pallu can be experimented with. I pleated it and tucked it in the bosom area as well.  It can be combined with a beautiful belt to give a new look.

This very ethnic style is one of my favorites. Here , I made pleats on both sides and not in the front. the pallu was neatly pleated and tucked in the cleavage area. Gives a very classic look like dancer damsel of kingdoms.

This is what I would like to call ‘Gandhari Style’ . The pleats are made in chic and crisp pleats in the front and the pallu is pleated and won like a dupatta in the front of the chest. I really like this style its perfectly flaunts the slenderness and femininity. If you are wearing a light sari with chiffon or Georgette material then the transparent pallu need not be pleated and can be spread out to cover the chest.
