#Dare2Drape with Triveni Ethnics: The Dual Drape Challenge 6

Indian Bloggers

For this week’s #dare2drape challenge, I have explored a new way of wearing sarees. Yes sarees! A couple of sarees together as one outfit! This drape comprises of 2 different sarees in altogether different textures and fabrics, but having similar hues, so that together they could create the impact of one color-coordinated silhouette. For this dual drape challenge, I have used a turquoise blue plain Kathan silk saree along with another linen saree from Triveni Ethnics that has a checkered border and pallu in the shades of turquoise and navy. This border and pallu compliment the turq plain saree and its black and grey skirt gives the whole look a nice contrast. The first saree is draped in a normal ulta palla drape and the second one is draped over it like a seedha palla drape.

Step 1: Drape the plain saree in regular ulta palla (nivi style) over any blouse of your choice. I’ve worn a spaghetti top instead of a normal blouse.

Step 2: Pin the pallu up on the shoulders like airhostess or the uniform drape.

Step 3: Pleat the second saree’s 1/3rd part in similar size pleats like the 1st one.

Step 4: Tuck the pleated part right beside that of the 1st saree in opposite side (like seedha palla).

Step 5: Drape the rest of the part from back to the front of the right shoulder.

Step 6: Pleat the pallu and pin it on the right shoulder like that of a seedha palla. Leave it hanging loose in front and you’re ready to go!

Since this drape requires 2 sarees together to be worn, so it might add volumes to your waistline. So, be sure to pick lightweight sarees for this, preferably georgettes and chiffons. Aslo, embroidered, embellished and heavy zari bordered sarees should be avoided for this drape.
