Double layer kurti cutting
First we will see the double layer kurti drafting.
The double layer kurti image above has different measurements written.
- Waist length 14″
- Waist round 36″
- Layer length 32″ + 2″
- Skirt length 42″
- First measure the waist length.
- The point where it ends will be our point for waist round measurement.
- From waist round measure the skirt length till the floor.
- Measure the layer length from waist round till the calf muscle.
- We will make panel skirt for this double layered kurti. If you wish you can also make an umbrella skirt.
- The skirt will be attached to the layered kurti.
Double layer kurti drafting
The layer kurti cutting comprises of 3 parts:
- Upper body draft
- Layer drafting
- Skirt drafting.
In the above image
A – B = Waist length + 1″
C – D = Waist round /4 +2″
- Fold the fabric right side together.
- Draw the upper body draft as shown above.
- First cut the back.
- Now lay this back once again and draw the pattern, give the front armhole shape.
- Cut the back.
- Now once again fold the fabric in half and fold once more. So now you have 4 layers.
- Mark the length.
- Cut the layer.
Now we will see paneled skirt drafting and cutting.
First we will draft the panel for skirt.
- X – Y = Length of the skirt on folded side.
- A -B = Waist round / 6 +1″
- C – D = Circumference of the skirt/ 3
- Cut the panel from A – B -D – C
- Keep it folded from X – Y
Panel skirt cutting
- Fold the fabric according to your skirt length.
- On both the selvedges side keep the single panel i.e from AB – DC.
- In the middle keep the full panel I mean open the folded part. So the middle panel will be from A -B-D-C.
- The above panel skirt placement on fabric will make easier to understand.
- Now cut the panel pairs.
- You will get total 6 panels.
- 3 set for front.
- 3 set for back.
