not familiar with the half saree ? the woman in the centre wears it.  half saree/sari is  mostly worn by girls once they reached 14-15 years.  and most common in the southern part of the country..

The half saree , a atraditional way of dressing , always preluded the saree,  is almost on its ways to extinction. the salwar kurta  takes its place  and is considered more forward looking, even in the rural areas, where the tatters of traditional garments still had its last looks until recently

    True that half-saree lost its sheen when salwar kameez became famous about 15 years back. It has remained the preferred wear for girls in rural Tamil Nadu. With famous textile retail brands introducing new half-saree designs, it is again gaining in popularity in urban Tamil Nadu too.
