The saree, the quintessential Indian garment featuring nine yards of pure grace, is worn in a wide variety of drapes across the Indian subcontinent. From young to the very old, stick thin to well-endowed, the saree enhances every woman who adorns it.

I absolutely adore the saree, but sadly I really lack the skills required to drape it gracefully. When I wear one, it is armored with a battalion of safety-pins, toilet stops get postponed and I find myself walking ever so cautiously lest I trip and unravel all my pleats.
