    Ladies..check out the 10 simple steps to wear madisar....

    Stand with your legs about 2 ft apart

    1)Make 5-6 pleats( lengthwise) in one end of the saree.
    2)Keep these pleats on your left (at the back) and hold it above ur waist line with ur left hand
    3)Bring the saree around your body and make a knot at the left back in your waist line.. DONT DISTURB the Pleats .. the pleat should comfortably dangle over the knot..
    4)Bring it to the front and tuck one edge almost near ur right edge of ur hip and then again take it to the center and tuck it there
    5)Make the pleat (width of the saree) and bring the whole saree to the back under your legs.
    6)Tuck the saree at the back (waist line).
    7)Bring around the saree thro' your left after tucking the shorter edge slightly at your right.
    8)Bring the saree around your body again
    9)Pass it on to your right shoulder arranging the border.
    10) Bring the border around and tuck in the front.

    there are tailors in Chennai who would stitch it for u.. the tailors who stitch costumes for films should be able to do that

    hi

    very nice tips to wear madisar saree. thanks for that.

    Ready made madisar sarees:

    Ready made madisar sarees are available in Pothy's. you go and select the saree . and teel them to alter it to readymade. they measure your size and stitch it to you. even if you wear also it doesn't look like the readymade one. the saree would be their as it is to catch everybody's attention.

    regards
    brammi
