Wearing a Saree in Gujarati style
Step 1: Starting at the navel, tuck the plain end of the saree into the petticoat keeping the entire saree on the left and continue tucking till you take a complete turn. Adjust the lower end of the saree to the height required. Ideally footwear is worn prior to draping the saree so that you drape the saree to the right length. (If this point is not clear check here)

Step 3: Now take the remaining saree to the left around back and up over your right shoulder keeping desired length for the pallu. Fold the pallu into pleats and tuck the left bottom edge of the pallu inside the petticoat. Then secure the pleats with pin.
