A pre stitched saree, also known as a ready to wear saree or a pre draped saree, is a modern variation of the traditional Indian saree. It is designed to simplify the process of wearing a saree by eliminating the need for pleating and draping the fabric.
In a saree gown, the pleats are pre-set, and the pallu (the loose end of the saree) is pre-attached to the rest of the garment. The saree is typically constructed with a skirt or petticoat that is worn separately, and the pre-stitched saree is draped over it like a skirt, with the pallu falling gracefully over the shoulder.
These sarees are popular among women who may not be familiar with the intricate draping techniques of a traditional saree or those who prefer a hassle-free and convenient alternative. Pre-stitched sarees come in various styles, fabrics, and designs, catering to different preferences and occasions.
Wearing a pre-stitched saree requires minimal effort and time compared to draping a regular saree, making it a convenient choice for weddings, parties, and other events. It allows women to enjoy the elegance and beauty of a saree without the complexity of draping it from scratch.
It's worth noting that while pre-stitched sarees offer convenience, they are a departure from the traditional art of draping a saree, which holds cultural and historical significance in India. Many women still prefer the traditional way of wearing a saree, considering it an integral part of their cultural heritage.
