I wanted to thank you so very much for all your encouraging comments on the sari to lehnga post (HERE).
Many of you asked for a tutorial on draping the sari into a lehnga.
So, here it is, I have tried to capture the entire draping process in pictures..here goes.
Step 1: Start with the petticoat (under skirt).
Step 2: Tuck in one end of the sari into the petticoat.
Step 3: Start pleating, the same way you pleat a sari. Make about 10 pleats at a time.
Step 4: This one is a little tricky. The pleats you have made, now need to be distributed as evenly as possible and tucked in again.
Repeat this step, on the entire sari, so you have pleats all around.
Step 5: When you reach the other end of the sari, fold the end in (so the edge is not visible) and tuck it in.
Make sure there is an overlap (of a few inches) between the 2 ends of the sari. Tuck in
I hope I have simplified the process, for you. If you still have any questions do feel free to leave them in the
