How to wear this simplified version of a Sari (Saree) While a proper Sari should be much larger and ornate than these costume versions, they are also much more difficult to wrap.  Our costume designer found an affordable way to achieve a desired look in a way that local school children can quickly learn to do for themselves or with a buddy.

Step 1: Hold sari with one end close to hem of under dress (closer to waist on Jr-Std multi colored sari). Toss bulk of sari / drape over wearer’s left shoulder.
Step 2: Hold front drape steady with left hand (closer to should than mannequin can). With right hand, reach behind your back and bring long drape to the front.
Step 3: With right hand, toss long drape over left shoulder.
Step 4 Back view: Tie belt in back under the long drape. Secure back drape with a pin (straight or safety) near neck.


Step 4: Secure sari with belt and adjust fabric by smoothing folds with gentle pulling under the belt.
