How to wear this simplified version of a Sari (Saree). While a proper Sari should be much larger and more 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.
Overview: 1. Place Sari over left shoulder with longest section to the rear. 2. Bring rear section across the back in diagonal motion to right waist. 3. Toss same section over right shoulder. 4. Secure with pin at back of neck and belt at waist.
