Query

I did a lot of cool things last month. Apart from wearing teeny dresses to children's parties, I mean.

One of these was learning to wear a madisaar from a friendly neighbour. I was thinking about blogging the method but given the time-consuming photographic session that will be required, I'm asking you, is anybody really interested? If you are, please let me know. My post on wearing a saree shadharon bhabhey probably gets the most hits on this blog, even overtaking the Survival Guide for DILs. Hence my indecision.

Are you ever likely to want to drape a nine-yarder, huh?

Yes, Please. It would be good. The last time I wore it, husband's grandmother helped me but I'm hoping to learn and do it by myself. So, it would be of great help.
Thanks

Yes please! So far I've only seen people requiring an army of women around to help them, so a tutorial would be awesome.

Would love to learn.... but, there are atleast 2 versions of the madisaar that I know of... the iyer kattu and iyengar kattu. they are very different, since the draping is in opposite directions. Which one are we talking about .. ?

Thnx,
Smitha

Oh boy. Very well, I'll get down to it. It doesn't require an army of women, it just requires a bit of practice.

Smitha -- We are talking of the Iyer kattu, I think. My neighbour is a Palakkad Tam and taught me the right shouldered-pallu drape.

Kalakareenga Sue..Iyer Kattu and all..makes me wonder if you are a Bengali or a TamBram!!Anyways, jaldi give us a demo..want it before next week, when I'll have to wear one!

Sue said...

Ramya -- Wait, Argee? That you? I'll try to post this weekend. Will be tough to do it on my own though.

I'm definitely not TamBram... I need my meat!

Hack -- It only looks intimidating, but it feels very secure once you've got it on. :) Welcome back online. Not that I've been posting much.
