Western women and saris

Miss Walters is thin and very tall, and often wears a sari because she is going to marry an Indian man. They love watching her when she does, because she wears a sari in the way that Western women do, as if it were a dress, without knowing how to receive its drapes and flows onto their bodies, moving against it instead of with it.
