  • How to drape Marathi Style Saree

  1. Make around one meter fabric in your hand and loop it around your back, while the rest of the length lies on your right.  The bordered edges of the fabric are to be tied securely at the waist.

  2. Gather your pallu and bring it over to the front from the back, and fix it over the left side of your shoulder, like for any normal saree style. In the next step, we’ll take care of the loose length that needs to be out of the way.

  3. Start pleating with the loose fabric! Make 4-inch pleats. Settle in on around 8 to 9 pleats. Tuck these in at the navel.

  4. Thee pleats now need to be taken from between the legs to be tucked in at the back.  There’ll be a double borderline at the back.

  5. The last step is to drape the pallu elegantly. Take it from the back to cover the shoulder and then it has to be strategically tucked in at the waist on the left side.




  • How to drape Gujarati Style Saree

1. Wrap the length of the saree around your waist. This should go from right to left. Drape some of the fabric in the front (and tuck it into the waist) before wrapping it around your waist again.

  • This style of draping is most popular in western India.

  • One popular fabric for sarees in Gujarat is the gharchola, which is a cotton and silk blend that boasts a grid pattern. Inside each square of the grid, there's a hand-embroidered design.#*To create the illusion of an hourglass figure, wrap the saree around the narrowest part of your waist, which may be a little higher than your natural waist.

2. Tuck 7 to 8 pleats into the waistband. The folds (the creased, closed ends) should be facing towards the right. If you're having trouble keeping the pleats from falling out, pin them together before tucking into the saree.

3. Pull the pallu from back to front over the right shoulder. This is what makes the Gujarati style different - it goes counter-clockwise. Let the pallu hang down your right side.

  • The pallu is the side that is heavily embroidered, decorated, or of a different color.

4. Pin pleats across your chest to the left side of your waist. Place the pins in the back out of sight as needed to keep the pallu in place.

5. Pull the pleats to the right for the Rajrani variation. This is a traditional style that was popular among royals. You’ll also want to adjust the pallu so it falls in a slight ‘V’ shape in the front.

6. Drape a gold kamarbandh around your waist per the Gujarati tradition. Also known as a saree belt or a belly chain, the kamarbandh goes on your waist, around the saree. Choosing a gold one will complement the gold in the saree's border.

  • Saree belts come in a range of styles like double strands, dangling chains, and pendants.
