    Hi Saroj,

    Welcome to IL.

    Please search for Kowl Salwar in this thread, where I have posted the draft for Kowl (dhoti) salwar. There is also a draft for the patiala salwar in this thread.

    Please go through the thread carefully.

    Hope this is helpful.

    Re: Sewing/Tailoring/Stitching : Salwar - Kameez, Chudidhar, Punjabi Dress Instructio

    Hello. I am trying to understand how to position and cut the kameez on a rectangular piece of fabric. What I mean is, with the help of a rectangular diagram could you kindly help me understand where exactly the body part and more importantly the full-length-sleeves will be positioned for drawing/cutting? I want to have some embroidery done on the fabric and need this info to plan the positioning.

    Re: Sewing/Tailoring/Stitching : Drafting Armscye depth

    Thank you for the great information you provided on this thread. I have been stitching for a while but have problems with the sleeves fitting into the armholes. I used your formula, adding 0.5" to the armhole to get the sleeve width but still have problems with the fit.

    Kindly tell me what measurement you use for the across front at the chest is it 1/4 chest + 1" or 1.5" or that does not matter when you draft the sleeve.

    Thanking for your help.
