    :thankyou2:

    Thank you very much!!!!

    It.s terribly kind of you to send me the sewing pattern with such an exact description. I dont have much experience in sewing, so for sure it will be very helpful.

    Whenever I start cutting the material, more questions will probably arise, so I will keep in touch with you.

    :wave

    hi, Zarapkar system of cutting book would be a very useful one. If anyone could post tips from that book it will help beginners to a great extent. I am very sorry to say that i missed that book when I shifted my house:(

    Thanks and regards,
    ArtisanMD.

    Hello-
    Looking for a sewing pattern for a Punjabi Suit. If anyone would be kind enough to give/direct me to a pattern I would be very grateful. I've searched the web & can not find anything.
    Thank you!
