Have you ever watched your mother or grandmother expertly drape a saree, and thought, I can totally do this! But 2 hours later, you find yourself sitting in a pile of fabric and broken safety pins, completely humbled. Or is that just me?
Just in case this story is familiar to you, here’s a tutorial that breaks down how to drape a saree from someone who knows a thing or two about getting dolled up. The Saree Room’s Social Media Coordinator, and in-house fashionista, Aliya Kang, shows us the easiest way to drape a saree when your nani isn’t around to save you.
Before you start, you will need:
- Safety Pins
- Saree Blouse
- Full-length mirror, if possible
