Ever seen the ubiquitous Indian mens dhoti? Well, Maharashtrians usually drape their saris much like a dhoti, with the centre of the sari held lengthwise and placed at the centre back, and the ends are brought forward and tied securely, after which these two ends are wraped around the legs. You will most likely see this style worn by women in Maharashtra and Karnataka in colors like red or bottle green.

The Maharashtrian nauvari style of draping a saree involves wearing the nine yards of fabric in a style that is traditional to the region. In Tamil Nadu, certain sections of society wear the nine-yard saree in a wrap around style sans pleats

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.

At very first start circling the saree at the navel, place the plain end of the saree hooked on the petticoat and keep it inserting till you take a full turn from right to left. Confirm the length of the saree till the bottom of your foot and thus it won’t display the petticoat.Clutch the top border of the saree which is the anchal and bring it all around your hips to the front side and over your left shoulder.The anchal is made to hang down from back to the knee. You may brooch your anchal to your sari blouse.Then start making pleats. There should be at least seven to ten pleats, clutch them all together so that they fall straight. Insert the pleats into the waistline of petticoat from somewhat to the left of the navel and while doing so always assure to take care and see that the pleats are turned towards the left. Lastly the anchal that is the remaining section of the fabric is rounded all over the body again and then wrapped over the left shoulder. Assemble the pleats on this part of the saree and then pin them up on the left shoulder.
