    This is a short petticoat. This garment is worn under kurthi or shirts as underwear. While drafting the pattern care must be taken to keep back neck depth and front neck width more than that of Kurthi. While stitching slide slit of 3” to 4 “should be made. This prevents the slip from rolling up.
    A-G = full length of petticoat needed + ½”
    On the line A-G mark the points I, J, C and E such that
    A-C = ¼ chest -1”
    A-E = waist length.
    A-I = back neck depth = 3” or to taste.
    A-J = front neck depth 2” less than A-C or to taste.
    Draw perpendiculars from the points A, I, J, C, E and G and mark the points on them such that
    A-B = ¹/8 chest + ¼”
    A-K = 1/12 chest + ½” or to taste
    C-D = ¼ chest + 1½” and C-N =A-B. Join B-N. On this line mark M such that B-M = 1” Join K-M
    E-F = ½” less than C-D
    G-H = C-D + 2” join D-F –H by a curved line.On this line Mark L such that L-H =¾”
    Join G-L by a curved line as shown.
    Join front neck line K-J and back neck line K-I as shown.
    Cut the draft along the line I-K-M-D-F-L and G.
    Cut along the line I-J-C-E-G. Keep the portion on which lines are not marked. This is half of the draft of the back.
    Take the other portion and cut along the line K-J .This is the front of the draft.

    Dear Art Vani ma'm

    Thanks very much for the detailed description. I just posted few days ago to help me stitch my slip for a ready made chiffon kurti.

    Anvita and Sudha referred me to your blog, Sudha gave the link also. I thank both of them too.

    Kind Regards
    Shanti

    Vani mam,

    I have tried this yesterday..And it was come out good.But believe me I dont know even the abc in stitching.But I always wanted to stitch some cute frocks for my little kid. So as a maiden attempt, I tried this and am really happy that I got it correctly.

    Thanks for your procedure and cutting..

    And I have some doubts . Please clarify me.

    1.I tried ramper also. It came out good. But do we need to put zip for this dress?How could we make the kids to wear this dress.Sorry to ask these kinds of silly questions.But I have nobody to ask except you.

    2.Waist length means from the shoulder to waist.Am I right??Please do correct me if am wrong.

    2.In ramper you have mentioned as seat.It is around the seat right???Or just one part of it??

    Sorry mam, for asking so many questions. Its all beacause of my enthusiasm...:)
