    I purchased this Petticoat, Indian Trendy Sari Petticoat Cotton Stitched Adjustable Waist Saree Underskirt Lining Skirt (One Size (Waist: 26" - 42" || Length: 38"), Aqua) at Amazon Women’s Clothing store

    It practically swims on the floor ---- plus I don't wear heels.

    I know how to hem a skirt, but what about the waist?

    My waist is 26". This skirt's waist is big, and it has drawstring.

    How to reduce bulk of petticoat on waist?

    Is it something to alter, or is there a knack to distributing the scrunched-up cloth to the entire waist, and then tucking the saree.

    The lady in this tutorial has a slim-waist petticoat, for example

    Hi
    Its not easy to get the slim look on a petticoat that is so much bigger in size at the waist, without you actually altering the same. However, you can try spreading out the gathers more towards right side, i.e under your right hand side and tie the string in that end. This is because the palloo would cover this side when you wear the saree. However, too big a bulk on that side also, would not be very comfortable.

    you Do get sizes in those but if it’s bulky you must spread evenly.
    nowadays we get satin petticoat and other material like soft cotton which is not bulky like the cotton ones. But they’re more slippery. Can give u a neat look from outside

    See, that's why I purchase things one at a time.

    Next petticoat will be of these soft materials.

    Now I have to wrestle with this cotton one!
