The Dual Drape

Maitreni Mishra

For this week’s #dare2drape challenge, I have explored a new way of wearing sarees. Yes sarees! A couple of sarees together as one outfit! This drape comprises of 2 different sarees in altogether different textures and fabrics, but having similar hues, so that together they could create the impact of one color-coordinated silhouette. For this dual drape challenge, I have used a turquoise blue plain Kathan silk saree along with another linen saree from Triveni Ethnics that has a checkered border and pallu in the shades of turquoise and navy. This border and pallu compliment the turq plain saree and its black and grey skirt gives the whole look a nice contrast.

The first saree is draped in a normal ulta palla drape and the second one is draped over it like a seedha palla drape. Since this drape requires 2 sarees together to be worn, so it might add volumes to your waistline. So, be sure to pick lightweight sarees for this, preferably georgettes and chiffons. Aslo, embroidered, embellished and heavy zari bordered sarees should be avoided for this drape. You can check the details of this drape with some more pics here on my blog.
