9780966149616: Saris: An Illustrated Guide to the Indian Art of Draping

This book is a manual to learn how to wrap (drape) 100 sari styles and other unstitched clothing of India (dhoti, mekhla, veshti). It has 700 illustrations showing step-by-step how to produce these costumes from the flat piece of cloth. Many of these styles are about to be forgotten and this book will soon be the only way to learn some traditional sari wrapping techniques. The book also has an introduction to basic draping techniques and a chapter on the history and evolution of Indian unstitched clothes, as well as some explanations about the social implications of clothing in India.
