I had promised to start my series of tutorials from today. Unfortunately my daughter is down with viral fever and hence i wouldn't be able to sit and sew. Hence thought that instead of postponing it entirely to next week. I shall give a brief about what it is and what are all the requisites etc and next week get hands on with it. Hope it is ok with all of you out there. Thanks for understanding.
What is Patiala Salwar?
A Patiala salwar (also called a pattian walee salwar) is a type of female trousers which has its roots in Patiala City in the Northern region of Punjab. Though it originated there its popularity spread all over India. Only few seasons back it was the hot trend in all metros. Apart from my style statement, the reason for its popularity is the 'Comfort' factor. It is just so comfy to wear and get on with your chores (business/personal).
Patiala Salwar as you can see above has lot of pleats to give it the bulky drape and hence requires 3.5 to 4 metres depending on your seat round.
Interestingly there are lot of variations to it, the one below is semi-patiala which as you can see has lesser pleats and requires around 3 metres of it
It can be made as drapier as required. Just have a look at the one below and get awed by its fullness
Fabric Required - 3.5 to 4 metres (depending on whether you want it to be semi-patiala or full patiala)
Paper for drafting pattern;
Please Note that the width of fabric should atleast be 42inches. The more the width the lesser yardage required and vice-versa
As of now uploading pattern (generic) and indicating the references for drafting the same. Next week shall draft a new pattern for specific hip round and height. So bear with me for this week, for my daughter's sake!
Waist Band piece is a rectangle whose
Breadth = Your waist + 5 inches.
Height = 6.5 to 8 inches (Basically waist to hip length or the Hip Position in pattern making terms)
The Kali Piece. Width = 8.5" Height - Ur Pant Height ; Please Note it is on fold; Also keep note of grainline to get correct drape
The Next pattern piece has been labelled as A, B, C & D and hereby list down what each measurement refers to
A-B - Width of fabric (Atleast 42 inches)
B-D - Crotch depth (ranges from 6.5 - 8 inches)

Cut 4 pieces of the below pattern (2 opposite sets of 2 pieces each for each leg)
