Step-by-Step Guide on Draping Your Child in a Dhoti
Step 1: Hold the dhoti horizontally on the backside. Ensure that coloured sides are facing outward and on the top.
Step 2: Measure how much is needed on either side of the body and wrap if from the back to the front. Bring it ahead so that there is an equal measure of fabric on both sides.
Step 3: After bringing both the ends to the front, tie a knot near the navel. Make a series of folds on the right side and tuck it into the waistband. Repeat the same on the left side.
Step 4: In the end, take the folded material through the legs without twisting it. Loosen or tighten it in a way it is comfortable for the child. Lastly, tuck the extras from the behind. And your child is ready!
