Hello friends..!!! here's me with another tutorial. I'm back again but after a long gap.. Well I feel great to be blogging again.
So, today i'm gonna tell you how to make a simple salwar. I'm covering this in about 3 posts. I have provided the links to the remaining posts at the end of this post.
At first, we're gonna learn the drafting part. Follow the instructions carefully.
For making a simple salwar, obviously you will require fabric. :). see the fig. 1. Now spread your fabric (ABCD). fold it in half lengthwise (that is along GH) and then width-wise (along EF).
- Length of the Salwar
- Ankle Circumference ( Bottom opening)
Drafting of the pattern (Refer Fig.2)
AC = BD = Full length of salwar
AE = BF = Waist length
EC = FD = Length of the salwar + 1"
FH = Crotch length
FG = 1" inward
CJ = 1/2 of the ankle
JI = 1" seam allowance
Waist (Refer to Fig. 3)
LM = 1/2 of the Hip measurement + 4"
ON = 1/6 of the hip + 2" ( for casing and joining the salwar leg piece)
LO is on fold that is you fold the fabric double in width
So, you have completed the drafting part.. You are now ready to cut the fabric..
