    Sui, you have a good control of the saree material and are doing most things right. To my untrained eye, it looks like the "petticoat" should ideally be an inch or two higher on the tummy. When t-shirt is replaced by a blouse, a slightly higher petticoat "string/ naada" height would be better.

    Coming to your question, what do you mean by hip pleat? The pleat on the "top" of all pleats or the last pleat that transitions saree from pleats to pallu above the left thigh?

    You are almost there. You can get suggestions here and improve but the fastest approach will be to get in-person help like suggested in another thread. Find someone in a local Indian store, beauty parlor or just anyone in the Indian community who are willing to demonstrate it in person couple of times.

    I will attempt to tie the naada one or two inches higher - it was slipping due to chubby tummy

    Yes, hip peat is the one that transitions from pleats to pallu above the left thigh


    As of now I cannot find anyone to personally assist in any local Indian store, beauty parlor or anyone in Indian community. i only have IL :hearteyes:

    Check out Dolly Jain's saree draping styles - and also check some pre-pleating and folding of sarees - there are many youtube videos that give step by step instructions from your measurements to the saree folding..
    Then you can keep a ready pleated-folded saree with pins inserted and just drape it around

    If you have an Indian temple nearby, you will definitely find helpful persons who can guide you...

    Pooja season coming up - hope you become an expert quickly!

    Dolly Jain is my HERO!


    My next venture is pre-pleating


    I use more safety pins than is required, esp with delicate fabric like Georgette


    Alas, No Hindu temples nearby :(
