How to drape a Sari in Bengali Style

Hello dolls!

One of my friend recently got married in a Bengali family. In a function she dressed herself in Bengali attire and posted her snaps on a social site. No need to say she was looking very pretty. This inspired me to do a post on How to drape a Sari in Bengali Style. So next time do try this look.



Step 1: Starting at the navel, tuck the plain end of the saree into the petticoat keeping the entire saree on the left and continue tucking till you take one complete turn. Continue further a bit to left and tuck in the saree.

Step 2: Now make a reverse pleat that is tuck the saree in a big pleat from left to the right end of your waist. You can see the fall of the saree facing front now near your feet. Now make another big pleat from right to left end covering the earlier pleat.

Step 3: Start making smaller pleats at the end of the pallu so that the distinct border is visible. Put the pleated pallu on your left shoulder and pin it. Cover the chest with the inner pleat and secure it at the back. You can see the border in a vertical line from your shoulder to your knee and below. Adjust the length.

Step 4: The final step is to take the end point of the pallu from the back and bring it under your right hand and on to your right shoulder. Tie a bunch of keys at the end of pallu and let it fall onto your shoulder for that typical Bengali look.

So here you are in traditional Bengali style saree.
