Lol....sad how the brain doesn't work quite right w/out that first
cup of joe in the a.m.

I figured that somehow you were either twisting the fabric or, you
pleated then went in the reverse. The most seen sari drape is a
continuous wrapping from right to left around the body.

Aren't they comfy!!! I absolutely love my sari's. They are stunning
in their simplicity, and the variety of ways you can wear them is
great. I have a friend who brought about 30 sari's to store at my
house and they were all gorgeous, embroidered silks, beaded silks
etc. I wanted a few of them soooooo badly. But I have to constantly
remember that I need 'working' sari's. I would hate to pull the
beads or embroidery out by accident, or get a henna stain by
accident. So all of mine are "lower class" sari's. I bought most of
them on ebay, didn't pay more than $10 for any of them. I do own one
silk blend w/ silver sari work. Pulled the threading on that just by
wearing it....pooh!

Glad to hear you got it all worked out.
