The double saree may be made with any two varieties of nine-yard sarees with large borders, with the draping manner being the innovation rather than the saree.
As a result, traditional, designer, modern, plain or embroidered sarees, as well as sarees of different materials or colours, can be mixed and matched. The rich, colourful, and voluminous over a is created by the double saree drape.
Another appealing element for brides is that, though it provides a heavy and wedding-appropriate image, each saree does not need to be costly and complex, and hence may be worn independently at later times.
The same cannot be stated for the majority of other Indian wedding attire. This drape may also be used by slimmer ladies who wish to create a more sensuous shape for themselves.
To this day, the double saree drape is regarded as a modern and new way to wear a saree, which is why many women like to pair it with more traditional or classic sarees, allowing the drape to be the sole unique feature.
Nonetheless, several new fashion trends, the most popular of which is the contrast saree trend, have been mixed with this sort of drape.
Putting on the Outfit
The double saree drape is created by pleating and draping two sarees together in such a way that they blend into one garment:
- To begin, pleat one saree and tuck it in the centre-left of the petticoat in the traditional manner, with the tucked saree falling an inch short of the floor.
- The remaining pallu end is then carefully folded and brought to the front before being draped over the left shoulder and secured in place, leaving the pallu end hanging free.
- The pleats of the second saree are then tucked into the centre-right of the petticoat, overlapping the pleats of the first saree.
- The pallu end is elegantly pleated once more, but this time from the other side, so that it hangs in front over the right shoulder.
When wearing this drape, pins are used to keep the two sarees perfectly in place, ensuring that it appears attractive and put-together at all times. It should also be draped after putting on the appropriate shoes for the occasion so that the saree falls appropriately.
Because this drape adds a lot of volume and drape, the style becomes very important. Most gold Indian jewellery, including necklaces, bangles, earrings, mang tikkas, and anklets, would look great with two classic sarees, while pearl or diamond jewellery would look great with a little more modern saree.
If the sarees are contrasting, the blouse can be the same colour as the sarees, or it may be a neutral colour that goes with both. For example, a pink or green blouse may be worn with a green saree and a pink saree, whereas beige or gold coloured blouses may be worn with a white saree and a red saree. High heels are the ideal choice for shoes since they nicely emphasise the draping.
