Hello everyone.. Time for another tutorial. This post would tell you how to make a princess cut kurti. This kurti is very similar to the straight-cut kameez/kurti only difference being in its shape. It has a little A-Line kurti-like shape. For drafting please check out the straight cut kameez tutorial sewing post.
1. You have to note few alterations.
0-8 = half shoulder
0-7 = 3.5" (or about 3 to 4)
8-A = shoulder slope
1 = midpoint of AB
7-2 = 11" (or 10.5")
3 = as far from the mid-line as is 7 (0-7) (3.5")
5-6 = hip + 3" (Hip measurement is as said in the above (straight-cut kameez) tutorial (RS))
4 = midpoint of 5-6
6-7 = seam allowances 1.5"
Draw the draft on the fabric and cut along the yellow dotted lines in fig. 1.

Keep both the cut pieces A&B together correspondingly. Next, place the piece B over A in such a way that their right sides face each other and the points E and E+ coincide. Check out fig. 4 and 5.

Hope this helps...!!
