Learn how to wear a saree in Bengali/Devdas Style


Basic Terms

Blouse : The Indian blouse called "choli" is the traditional attire and is usually worn with the saree or lehnga. It is essentially a low cut midriff baring blouse. It could either be sleeveless, half sleeves or full sleeves. The choli is cut to fit tight.

Petticoat : A petticoat or underskirt is an article of clothing for women; specifically an undergarment to be worn under a saree. The petticoat is a separate garment hanging from the waist. Saree petticoats usually match the color of the saree.

Pallu: The fanciest patterned end or loose end of the saree that falls on the outside so that the design can be seen

Step by step instructions :


Method 1

  • Wear a petticoat/underskirt tightly tied by a drawstring at the waist.
  • A nicely fitted blouse/top is worn before draping the saree
  • Tuck the first & upper end of the saree/material in the right hand side at the waistband of petticoat.
  • Take the material/saree to back & then taking it to the front by completing one round.
  • Now, make the reverse pleats by tucking the saree at back. The pleats of the saree should be falling in such a way that the back/reverse side of the saree should be showing at front.
  • Now, take the rest of the saree/materials to the forward direction & start making pleats according to the width of the border of saree.
  • Adjusting the pleats made, rest them on the left shoulder throwing the palla in such a way that you get a straight/vertical fall infront with the pleats & borders done.
  • Now, adjust your pleats neatly with proper fall & drag the border to the back covering the bust area & finally fix it up tightly with a pin
  • Now, hold the corner of the pallu part/ material & drag it keeping under the shoulder with a pin making a V at side.
  • For giving complete Bengali look, you can tie a bunch of keys or key holder or key ring at the edge of the palla throwing it to back.

VARIATION-I

  • In case, if u don�t feel comfortable by putting the palla at right shoulder, then u can drag the pallu & pin it up at your left shoulder only.
  • In this style, we can see four borders in the front look of the saree style/drape.

VARIATION-II

  • To give a new look, we can also fix the corner of the palla by rotating & finally pinning it up at your right wrist.

VARIATION-III

  • For a bride, we can use the back fall or cowl of the saree for covering the head by supporting it with the hairstyle & then fixing it with a pin.
