    Hi ladies,

    my cousin stitched a chudidar for her dauhter for hip measurement, 1/4 of 34 +1), but the hip was so tight, how many inches extra to be taken?
    for the chest measurement 1/4 0f 36 + 1, even that was so tight, here also how many inches extra to be taken?
    one more pl..... for top, side opening on both sides where exactly the opening should be, at the hip or at the waist or mid of the above ? pl if someone help me it will be useful to others too.......

    Thanks,
    Leela........

    Dear Leela,
    the opening for the top (Kameez) should be 3 or 4 inches below the waist normally. For fat people, if the opening is at the waist itself, it will look good.
    Measure the person, if possible and add 2 inches extra and cut. Then stitch at the extra 1 inch (the 1 inchis for seam). It depends on how loose fitting you want your dress to be. Some people wear tight fitting dresses, and some loose.
    For the salwar (bottom) some extra will not do any harm, as we wear the kameez over it.
    I do not go by the measurement method, I stitch according to the peron's physique. I myself of fat, but very short. If the measurement method is used, the dress will be very long for me.
    And some people will be very thin with broad shoulders, some may have a larger bust size but otherwise thin frame and so on. So it is better to stitich according to the person.
    Hope this had been of some help. Pl let me know the result.
    With warm wishes,
    varloo

    Dear Stella,

    Hi and hope tis keeps you in the best of your spirits and health.

    Primarily for chudidar always the measurements should be taken as 1/4 chest plus 4 inches and like wise for the rest.

    Bye

    Nalini

    Hai leelal,
    you can stitch a little closer to tighten the dress.
