So this is the same concept as my last two drapes. However, instead of wrapping around the chest like a strapless dress, or wrapping around the torso and over the shoulder like nivi, it is simply made into a belt. I love all the pleats. I also have the 9 yard cotton drape folded in half to make a 4.5 yard baby carrier. For a bonus the last picture is my daughter(also in the posing in my recent sari drape pictures) when she was about 9 months old taking her nap on my back in my mother-in-laws worn out orange cotton sari. Thanks for such a fun sari draping challenge!
