Today we will learn how to stitch Apple cut kameez/top.This type of top goes well with salwar as well as churidar. Apple cut kurti has round shape from bottom end.
The snap of Apple cut top.
Construction of draft will be same that of simple kurti but with one change. You can see the curved red line in the bottom this curve makes it apple cut .
9-a =1 cm
b is the midpoint of 9-c.
d is the midpoint of 2-c.
Make a curve from a-b-c-d.
First finish the necklines, attach the sleeves, join the sides till point 9. Now we will learn how to stitch the rounded curve.For this you will need bias strip. Measure the whole curve add 2″ to it and cut the bias strip of the measurement you got.The width of the bias strip will be 1.5″. We will need bias strip for front as well as back.
Now fold about 1 cm of one side of strip.Keep the unfolded side of strip on point c of kameez. Make sure you keep right side of strip on right side of kameez and start stitching the strip with kameez. The strip should be on top of kameez. Don’t stretch the strip while stitching let it go on its own.Now fold this strip towards inside and stitch it.
Note:Kindly check your kurta for fitting before attaching the bias strip to it. As after stitching the bias strip fitting cannot be altered.

Very nice creation. How do we stitch a brocade border around neck and bottom edge to get this finish? When I tried it with a zari border it became very pleated and didnot look good at all 🙁 Please help me on this.

After finishing the neckline attach the border to it. For attaching it to bottom edge we have to take very tiny pleats while sewing the border with the dress.
