Tailors are really doing dis-service to the saree wearer and the saree by “overdoing” this pre-stitched part.
Unknowingly, this simple and beautiful saree became an example of monstrosity.
Ok, take a deep breath; take a saree that you like and if you think you need to have it pre-stitched, if it fits your lifestyle, then have it tailored, by all means. But don’t murder it by adding the elements in the saree that are not supposed to be there.
Imagine the same saree as above, except remove the central blue border/stripe where the pleating is supposed to be. That would be a nice sophisticated beautiful saree.
If you want a design like this, go get a lenhga. It will look much better on you and it will be better fitted.
