. Tuck the plain end of the saree into the petticoat and continue tucking till you take a complete turn from right to left. Adjust the lower end of the saree to the height required. Ideally wear your footwear so that you drape the sari to the right length.

2. Create pleats with the sari. About 6 - 9 pleats would do with most saris. Here it is essential to see that the pleats are even and fall straight.

3. Tuck the pleats into the waist petticoat, taking care to see that the pleats are turned towards the left.

4. The remaining portion of the saree must be turned once around the body and then draped over the left shoulder.

5. Arrange the pleats on this part of the saree and then pin them up on the left shoulder to prevent the pallu from falling off.

Before draping the saree, ensure that you wear a well-fitting blouse and petticoat. Do not wear a flared petticoat. Getting a fall stitched on the saree bottom ensures a better drape. While some women prefer to wear the top portion of the saree loosely over the shoulder and allow the rest to fall gracefully, others pin up the front pallu in pleats for a neat look. Use a pin to secure the pallu on the blouse to prevent the sari from falling in front http://www.targetwoman.com…

Here is a step by step how to drape a saree:

Step 1: First of all put on a saree-petticoat and tie it confortably tight around the waist or just 3-4 inches below (for hipster look) Then take inner end of the saree and starting from left side three-fourths accross the front-waist tuck the upper edge into the petticoat. See that the lower edge of the saree is levelled with the ground (don’t forget to wear your shoes or sandles with heels preferably.)

Step 2: Now take the loose end of the saree around the back & tuck smoothly into the petticoat.

Step 3: Bring the saree forward from the right hand side and fold into pleats (7 to 10) the last one little broader than the rest and pulled up slightly (this gives a neat smooth look) and tuck them neatly and flat into the petticoat. Again the lower end of the saree should be levelled with the ground.

Step 4: How much to leave for the pallu (the cascading end at the back) depends on the length that suits you best. Pull the over drape to tighteen around the hips and waist, take it up and place over your left shoulder in neat folds.

step 5:And there you are elegantly drapped in saree!http://www.43things.com/things/view…

Good to know that you want to learn to wear nine yards sari.

Stand with your legs about 2 ft apart *Make 5-6 pleats in one end of the saree (lengthwise). *Keep the pleats on your left (at the back) and bring the saree around your body and make a knot at the left back in your waist line.(In the direction Left-> Front-> Right-> Left) * Bring it to the front and tuck one edge ( and almost 1/2 way from that edge) in the front. Make the pleat (width of the saree) and bring the whole saree to the back under your legs. * Tuck the saree at the back (waist line). * Bring around the saree thro' your left after tucking the shorter edge slightly at your right. * Bring the saree around your body again * Hold it on your left and pass it on to your right shoulder arranging the border. * Bring the border around and tuck it in the front.

In most orthodox Tamil Brahmin households, dictates that for important ceremonies - like weddings and death anniversarees - the woman of the house must wear the nine-yard saree which is draped in the complex manner. The man is also expected to wear the panchagatcham which is a five-pleated dhoti. It has been handed down through generations.

Without a petticoat, it is worn. If it is wrapped properly, no other upper or lower garment is needed. This tradition of wearing the nine-yard saree was prevalent in the States like Karnataka and Maharashtra. In ancient days, several women wear this type of sari during wars like Jhansi’s Queen Laxmibai. Recently, In Tamilnadu, a ‘ready-to-wear’ madisar sari is introduced with complete stitched pleats, hooks and belt.

Iyer way of wearing a madisar: Make 5-6 pleats in one end of the sari with the same length. Keep the pleats on your left at the back and bring the saree around your body and make a knot at the left back in your waist line. Bring it to the front and tuck one edge almost 1/2 way from that edge in the front. Make the pleat and bring the whole saree to the back under your legs. Tuck the saree at the back or at waist line. Bring around the saree through your left after tucking the shorter edge slightly at your right. Bring the saree around your body again. Hold it on your left and pass it on to your right shoulder arranging the border. Bring the border around and tuck it in the front.

hi

In the state of Maharashtra the traditional saree is nine yards long (called the navvari saree) but it is worn so that there is freedom of movement…the saree is similar to a trouser. This type of saree usually reveals a good part of the ankles and the freedom this gives enables women to work in the fields. In fact working class women tend to wear their sarees pretty high. Ofcourse the middle classes and higher classes wear this type of saree too, or rather used to. Now it is only the older generation who does so. For some reason this kind of saree is dying out amongst the higher classes. I think this is sad, as this saree allows far more freedom of movement to women that the ‘gol’ (round) saree which has become the norm today.

in Tamil Nadu, certain sections of society wear the nine-yard saree in a wrap around style sans plets..

1. Tuck the plain end of the saree into the petticoat and continue tucking till you take a complete turn from right to left. Adjust the lower end of the saree to the height required. Ideally wear your footwear so that you drape the sari to the right length.

2. Create pleats with the sari. About 6 – 9 pleats would do with most saris. Here it is essential to see that the pleats are even and fall straight.

3. Tuck the pleats into the waist petticoat, taking care to see that the pleats are turned towards the left.

4. The remaining portion of the saree must be turned once around the body and then draped over the left shoulder.

5. Arrange the pleats on this part of the saree and then pin them up on the left shoulder to prevent the pallu from falling off.

Before draping the saree, ensure that you wear a well-fitting blouse and petticoat. Do not wear a flared petticoat. Getting a fall stitched on the saree bottom ensures a better drape. While some women prefer to wear the top portion of the saree loosely over the shoulder and allow the rest to fall gracefully, others pin up the front pallu in pleats for a neat look. Use a pin to secure the pallu on the blouse to prevent the sari from falling in front. http://www.targetwoman.com/articles…… //////

Hello Suhasini, Iyengar wears over the left. While old women still continue to wear the 9 yards sari, young ladies prefer to wear it only on religious festivals and ceremonies, especially on wedding days
