Step 3 : Bring the saree forward from the right hand side and fold into pleats (7 to 10) the last one a little broader than the rest and pulled up slightly (this gives a neat, smooth look) and tuck them neatly and flat into the petticoat. Again the lower end of the saree should be leveled with the ground.

Step 4 : How much to leave for the pallu (the cascading end at the back) depends on the length that suits you best. Pull the over drape to tighten around the hips and waist, take it up and place over your left shoulder in neat folds.
