I have been asked to do a five-minute presentation to a group of young school children on the topic of my choice.
My topic is “A Sari”.
What is a sari?
The dress the woman in the picture is wearing is called a “Sari”. It is six yards long and forty-five inches wide. A matching blouse and a petticoat of the same color enhances the beauty of this gorgeous dress. The petticoat which is an under garment is worn to help tuck in the sari , is like a long skirt which reaches up to the ankle.
The sari needs six yards for the pleats in the middle and for the shoulder. It comes in a variety of colors and the material is silk, or cotton or nylon.
The blouse comes down to the waist,it has short sleeves, long or no sleeves. It is something one who wears it, decides.
