First of all we will finish the neckline.We need a fusible canvas.If you wish to take only fabric you may,but the finishing effect will be less.In the pic you can see two curved lines.This is the neckline shape.
A-B = 8.5″ Fold along the line.
B-G = 9″
A-C =3″or less if you prefer less broad neckline you can take it 2″or 2.5″
C-D = 7″ measure it slantwise if you want deep neckline take 8″and if less you can take 6″ also.
C-E ; D-F = 1″
Now draw the desired shape from C-D and E-F .Cut along C-D and E-F
Now you are ready with your neckline.Keep this canvas on fabric and iron it and it will stick to the fabric.Take care that the shiny part is on wrong side of fabric as while ironing it will stick to it.
The first snap is of canvas ironed on fabric.Second one stitch along the border where you can see the orange dot.After stitching cut along the C-D. Keep this strip on kurta/kameez/kurti as shown below. Always keep right side of neckline strip on right side of kurti. Stitch along the shape of the neckline.Snaps will make it easy to follow and sew it.
Stitch the back and front neckline as explained.Now keep right side of front part on right side of back part.
Flip the back neck strip on front part.And sew the line a bit slant as shown below in yellow color.
Now turn the stitched side and flip it and on you have your back and front piece joined like the snap below.
You are aware that deep arm hole is front piece similarly in sleeves also the deep arm hole is front sleeves.
Stitch the sleeves with the kurta taking care that right side of front fabric is kept on right side of sleeves and sleeves lie down side.Stitch along the whole arm hole.Finish with both side.Now your kurti is ready with the sleeves.
Now mark the sleeves round and start sewing the line till the starting point of slits i.e B.
Sleeves part is marked as A
Sew the line a little curved way.This is the final sewing line.
Now bring the kurti inside out,now the right side of kurti is out and wrong side in .(In hindi we tell this as kurti ko sidha kar dijiye).
Below snap is of folded slit.
Hey !! your kurti is ready.
Share the snaps of the kurti you are sewing.It feels great when I see the snaps of kurti of my readers and bloggers.
