    Dear Raji and Ketal,

    A draft for salwar is easy to follow and cutting too.

    But blouse is a complicated one to understand by just seeing the draft and measurements. You need a tutor to assist you throughout.

    re: Sewing/Tailoring/Stitching : Design / Drafting/ Cutting Salwar, Chudidhar, Blouse

    hi pp,

    whatever i have uploaded, i drew using photoshop. it takes a lot of time for me. simply the draft, i can type it in few seconds. drawing is the most difficult part. without drawing nobody can understand the concept. so when the time permits, i shall definitely post for salwar tops. till then enjoy stitching a blouse.

    regards,

    vanaja

    hi rajr and ketal
    i will suggest u an easy way for blouse. pick a old blouse which is perfect in size. open all the stitches and make a paper cut now place the paper cuts on the material leave 1/2 inch gap and cut then stitch. this is a easy method
