Mermaid Style Saree Draping
Another charming choice for new brides, it is sheer elegance. This style complements the half and half sarees the most; a pallu that is embellished is even better. If you want to flaunt your hourglass figure or curves, this is your best bet.
What You Need
4. Safety pins
- Do the basic first round of neatly tucking the non-bordered part of the saree around the waist.
- Leave about an inch and secure it at the waist. This style needs no pleats.
- The remaining material will go around the waist. But first, tuck the beginning of the border at the left side of your waist, beside the belly button.
- Swing the remaining around and bring it to the front.
- Start making vertical pleats. They need to be as thin as the border. Put this over the right shoulder and let it fall in the front just a few inches above the floor, as shown below.
- If any part of the saree is remaining, tuck it all into the saree skirt without making any pleats; it should rather look like a skirt.
- Now, take the left end of the pallu and yank it towards the left side shoulder. Pull it from beneath the arm.
- Pull it under the pallu and pin it along with the inner skirt.
This graceful style of saree draping can effortlessly make you look like a pro.
