Wearing a Saree in Tamilian style
The saree is of 9 yard length also known as Madisar Iyer saree. You can wear slacks instead of petticoat inside.

Step1: Take one end of the saree and make around 10 small pleats. Keep the pleats as starting point and place them at the back from your left hand and wrap one complete  round from left to right and reach to left on the backside. Now the rest of the whole saree is onto your left.

Step2: Bring the saree to little front and tie a knot with the first layer. Tie the knot tightly.

Step3: Tie the loose end of the saree to your right and left as shown in the video.

Step4: Bring the rest of the saree to the backside from under your legs, tuck the saree at the back at the waist.

Step5: Bring around the saree to your left after tucking the shorter edge slightly on the right.

Step6: Wrap one complete round from waist to down and get the pallu on the right shoulder. Take the loose end and wrap it around the waist on the right.
