    Hi ILites

    This thread contains following useful Drafts & Descriptions.
    • An Idea to stitch strap keeper
    • Draft For Half Umbrella Cut skirt
    • Draft for Magyar Sleeves
    • Drafting Pyjama
    • Drafting Kurtha without Kali or Nehru Shirt
    • Drafting Chudidhar Pyjama
    • DrafttingPrincess seams



    Strap keepers work in two ways .They prevent bra straps from peeping out of the neck and also prevent wide neck lines falling away.
    Prepare fabric tubes from the fabric of the garment. The length of the fabric tube taken should be little more than the shoulder line of the garment. It should not be too long or short. Finish raw edges by turning them in Sew the two portion of a press button each on either edge of the fabric tube as shown in the figure. Sew the middle of the fabric tube to the seam of arm scye where the shoulder line is attached to the sleeve. If the length of the tube is too small there will be wrinkles on the shoulder. While wearing the garment one end of the strap is passed under the bra strap and the button is pressed together.

    Interchangeable strap stopper

    Take ¼” wide satin Let the length of the ribbon be little more than the shoulder line. Stitch the raw edges. Sew the two halves of press fastener one on each side .stitch the middle of the ribbon to the safety pin as shown in the figure. This can be used as a strap stopper by fixing the safety pin to the seam of the arm scye where the shoulder line and the sleeve meet:idea

    Method of drafting pyjama

    This pyjama can be used as an indoor garment or as an outdoor garment with Kurtha. If it is worn with Kurtha leg round is reduced.
    I have drafted front and back separately so that it will be easy to follow.If you want you can draft them together keeping side seams together.For young children no need of fly.front can be stitched together along the line C-K-Q-J

    Front
    A-B=1/3rd seat + 1½”.
    A-E=Length
    A-C= ¹/3rd seat.
    Mark point H on A-C, 1” below the midpoint of A-C.
    A-H =B-I. Join H-I
    Mark J such that B-J =¼ seat + 1¼”.
    A-C =B-D. Join C-D
    From J drop J-L perpendicular to C-D. This line intersects the line H-I at the point Q
    Mark point K, ½” below Q.
    Join C-K with a deep inward curve as shown.
    Mark point R such that R-J = 1¼”
    Drop perpendicular from R .It meets the line H-I at the point S
    Mark point M such that S-M = 1”. Shape M-K with upward curve.
    G-F= ½ leg round .Join C-F

    Back
    A’-B’=1/3rd seat + 1½”
    A’-E’=Length
    A’-C’= ¹/3rd seat
    Mark point H on A’-C’, 1” below the midpoint of A’-C’.
    A’-H’ =B’-I’. Join H’-I’
    A’-C ‘=B’-D’ Join C’-D’
    From B’ measure B’-O =¼ seat-1½”
    From O drop a perpendicular to C-’D’. This line meets I’-H’ at N. Produce N-O to P such that O-P = 1½”
    Join B’-P as shown in the figure.
    Mark T on the line I’-H’ such that N-T =1½”
    Produce D’-C’ to U such that C-’U =1½”. Join P-T-U as shown
    G’- F’ ½ leg round + ½”
    Join U-F’
    Right side front facing
    Using carbon paper trace shape R-J-K-S-M-R on a sheet of paper to get the draft of the fly facing.
    Left side fly extension
    It is prepared in the same way but on a folded sheet of paper keeping J-K on the fold.
    Allowances
    Add 1½” on R-j-B- P and tops of fly facing and fly extension for stitching casing.
    Add 1½” on F-G-F’ for bottom folding
    Add ½” on all other pattern edges for seams.
    If side seam is needed cut front and back of the pyjama separately and add ½” of seam allowance.
    If not place the drafts of front and back side by side matching the points BB’, DD” and DD”.
