Let’s continue our sewing journey. Now a days many of the females are wearing churidar. It goes well with long kurtis, and yes, of course anarkali is always accompanied by churidar. Today we will learn how to stitch churidar .
Sewing Churidar Tutorial
We should always cut churidar on bias cloth to get the perfect ankle chudis. Also bias cloth gives the maximum stretch required for churidar.
1-2= length – waist belt width +6″or you can take 8″,10″ as req.
1-4 and 6-5 = hip round/4
4-5 and 1-6 = hip round/3
1-8= knee length-waist belt width (to measure knee length keep point 0 of MT where you tie the belt and measure till the knee)
8-9= knee round/2+1″
2-3= ankle round/2+1″
For sewing churidar the cloth required is about 2.25 mt.
Fold the cloth in half length wise,and then fold it to get bias cloth.The snap will explain it.
Now keep the paper pattern on it and cut along the lines.If your fabric is plain then don’t worry 🙂 simply cut both leg parts. But if it is printed then be careful while cutting as we have to see that the printed part is in one direction only so cut both the leg parts differently.
After cutting you’ll have to add patch to both the parts esp.in area of 1-4-5-6.This happens as our cloth is bias.Join the patches with pin and then sew the patches.In the below snap I have marked it with RED LINEhope you will understand.
First of all fold along the line 2-3.Now keep the right sides of both leg parts on one another and sew along the crotch line 6-7 and finally sew along the seams as shown below in black line and the red line.Below the red line you’ll have to fix hook or tich buttons 🙂 as they make a sound of tich when pressed and your churidar is half done. Now make the waist belt take the cloth left from sides and to stitch see HERE and attach it to the churidar.
HEY!!!!! Your chudidar is ready.
