Kameez Draft - Tutorial

Salwar Kameez / Kurta Draft has been pending for quite sometime now, with the availability of scanner, i find it lot more easier to draft patterns by hand (yes i belong to old school of using paper, pencil, eraser & hand ofcourse to draw and prefer that to modern drawing s/w!!) , the draft is ready to be shared

Please note that this draft is for a loose fitting kameez without any darts , the tops which can be worn with Jean or leggings!

Also note that the neck depth affects the shoulder width and the deeper the neck, shoulder width should be reduced accordingly!

Please Note: The draft includes

  • 1/2 inch seam allowance on shoulders
  • 1 inch seam allowance on sides

Add Hem allowance as required

  1. Hey,
    I just came across your blog from purple peeptoes. It attracted my attention because of the unique name. Esp the word Amma. So original compared to mummy. Love your blog. I hope you keep stitching as your daughter grows up too. Keep up the awesome job !

  2. Thanks Julie! It was a conscious decision to teach my daughter to stick to Indian Culture and values and use traditional words to refer to people close to her, she calls me amma, her father appa and grandparents avva & thatha and every relative in native lingo! I do hope that i can continue to be the designer to my DD even after she grows up and has her own much stronger likes & dislikes!
