Pre-stitched Sarees: Perfect for the contemporary women

Sarees are one of the most favored and celebrated Indian ensembles. They have been around since the ancient Vedic era and have successfully stood the test of changing fashion trends.

It is nearly impossible to find even a single woman who isn't a saree lover. This traditional outfit is the most graceful piece of clothing a woman can don. However, many women struggle in draping this spectacular Indian ethnic attire.

If you are all game for sporting the six-yard traditional attire but, not keen on becoming a draping expert, a pre-stitched sari is an option worth checking out!


What is a Pre-stitched Saree?

Pre-stitched sarees, known as pre-draped, ready-to-wear and readymade sarees are a contemporary version of the conventional Indian saree. These sarees with pre-stitched pleats and pallu (the loose end of a saree that is generally draped over shoulder/s) are quite easy to wear and perfect for weddings, parties, festivals, religious ceremonies, and other special occasions.

Convenience and grace rolled into one outfit, readymade sarees are ideal for work and everyday wear. Matching petticoats or under-skirts are already stitched inside the readymade sarees, making them the apt option to a modern need for round-the-clock efficiency.


Pre-stitched sarees retain the elegance of the conventional saree and are as easy as wearing a skirt with an attached dupatta. Plus, you don't have to take the stress of fixing them again and again, unlike regular sarees that often loosen up.

Readymade sarees can be tailored using innumerable fabrics such as cotton, crepe, chiffon, jacquard, georgette, lycra, net, polyester blends, silk, satin blends, viscose blends, and all their variants. Pre-stitched sarees showcase varied patterns, embellishments, embroidery techniques (zardozi, phulkari, chikankari, lacework), designs, and are available in unending options to meet all kinds of style sensibilities.

Pros of a Pre-stitched Saree:

  • No hassles of pleating, tucking or pallu adjustments. Like a skirt, pull the saree up towards the waist and simply toss the pallu over your shoulder.
  • Easy to wear for working women with time constraints. Apt for those who are not proficient in the art of wearing a saree or want to skip the tedious draping process.
  • Tailor-made as per your measurements, hence, the fit, silhouette, and drape will look much neater and sophisticated.
  • Can be worn within a minute, these sarees are easy to manage while moving or walking. As the pleats are pre-stitched, you can walk freely without worrying about slipping, tripping or falling.
  • Available in ground-breaking designs and awe-inspiring patterns, pre-stitched sarees require minimalistic accessorizing.
  • Affordable and doesn't burn a hole in your pocket.


Factors to consider while choosing the right pre-stitched saree:

If you are lean and have a toned body, go for pre-stitched sarees made from cotton. Pre-stitched sarees made from chiffon, lycra, and georgette are perfect for women with an hourglass figure. Silk and crepe pre-stitched sarees look good on all body types.

For an ultra-feminine and charming look, go for a pre-stitched saree with floral patterns. To be a head-turner, pair the saree with a butterfly-sleeved blouse. The simple and classic paisley design is perfect if you want to go ethnic. Contemporary women with a unique taste in fashion can opt for pre-draped sarees with calligraphic and geometric prints. Some popular blouse designs to sport with modern pre-stitched sarees are backless blouse, deep-neck blouse, jacket-style blouse, and spaghetti strap blouse.

Women with fair complexion should opt for bright colors. Readymade sarees in off-white and beige color would look good on women with dusky complexion. Pastel hues like peach and turquoise would complement women with an olive complexion.
