Pleat the Pallu

Step #1:

Ensure the entire sari is well-ironed for ease of preparation. Decide the width of the pleat and take the first layer based on that width. 

Step #2:

Pleat the pallu, adjusting for any puffiness by pressing it down or pinning as needed.

Step #3:

Repeat this process until you reach the other end of the saree. Ensure that the good side of the sari is on both sides of the pallu.

Step #4:

Iron the pleated pallu once you are satisfied with the pleats. Use safety pins to secure and aid in the ironing process.

 

Front Pleats

Step #5:

If doing it for yourself, wrap it around yourself, ensuring the pleats are taken at the right spot.

 

 Step #6:

Start pleating until you get your desired amount of pleats. Gather and stagger the pleats slightly, then pin them together.

 

Step #7:

Lay the gathered pleats over the ironing board with the outside facing down

Fan out the front pleats for a beautiful shape. Iron only the inside folds lightly, leaving the outside folds organic and puffy.
