It's not a wrap

I am going out with my cousins and I want to inspire them about saris and show them that there are ways of wearing a sari that looks cool. I've got my sari and I open up my new book and pick a wrap style to suit going out on a cold night in London. I love these beautiful detailed drawings and find all the styles very varied with lots of possibilities for styling if I can only just get started. I'm clearly imagining that I can just do a quick wrap and head off and its all going to look fabulous. About 10 attempts later and I still only have a bundle of fabric on the ground. This supposedly practical and beautiful garment (once worn) is feeling like the most frustratingly impractical idea Iā€™ve come across for dress and no where near looks good. It's a disaster, what was I thinking! Quickly stash the idea and put on jeans, boots and coat. I'm going to need some help with this....
