Now tie your petticoat underneath your navel tightly as it is going to hold and secure your saree.  Hold the saree horizontally from its end, after opening it completely, now start wrapping it around your waist a little right to your navel and start wrapping it around your waist. Take only one circle of wrapping so that your petticoat is fully covered. Once the first wrap is done, tuck in the saree with the petticoat at least the front securely to obtain the look.

 Step 3:

 Pick up the reaming saree and start pleating it in an equal & organized way. Make sure the pleats go all the way to the end of the saree where your feet are. If needed, take help from someone to even out the pleat. There should be about 4 to 6 pleats depending on your saree length. Once the pleat is made, carefully tuck the entire structure into your front petticoat and secure the pleats with the help of a safety pin or Saree pin. 

 Step 4:

Now bring the remaining part that is Pallu to the front and drape it across your body towards your left shoulder. You can either keep the Pallu free or make pleats out of it and then in it with your blouse!
