Any regular Saree can be draped in a manner that gives an impression of a Lehenga. Due to its uniqueness of merging two traditional dress forms, this style is only worn on special occasions and celebrations.
If you have wondered enough about how to your regular Saree into a Lehenga in a jiffy, then, here's a shining example with an exclusive How-to-Drape video.
Before you can begin draping your Saree as a Lehenga, be prepared with:An embellished Saree | A classy blouse | Satin inskirt or petticoat | A pair of heels | Heavy stone studded Jewelry | Plenty of bangles | Few safety pins.
Start by tucking the Saree starting from center back only until right side of the waist.2.
Make pleats measuring a span width such that you get 5 pleat 'sets' in between right to left side of the waist.3.
Now, tuck the Saree until center back such that the Saree completes one round around the waist to the starting point.4.
Take the pallu to make pallu pleats.5.
Bring the pallu to the front, place it on the right shoulder and pin it up neatly.6.
Now, hold the upper corner of the pallu and take it left up until side waist and pin it up.
Feel free to adjust the number of pleats to suit your body frame.2.
To avoid fluffiness around the waist, try wearing an inskirt or petticoat that has a belt fastener instead of the traditional string.3.
Make sure to wear your footwear beforehand to get the right length of Saree.4.
Keep safety pins for easy pin-ups.5.
Be ready with basic make-up.
