Frokal Dress Cutting
The cutting comprises of 2 parts:
- Bodice cutting
- Flare Cutting
The bodice length = 15″
- Draft the upper body kurti pattern. Refer here for kurti pattern.
- Draft the front of kurti designs for stitching. If you already have kurti pattern on paper use it or else draw new kurti pattern.
- We will keep the length as 15″.
- Draft will be from 1-10-11-9-3
- Length = 48″-15″(bodice length)= 33″
- Waist Round 36″
Below image is of drafting pattern. First draft this pattern on a paper.
- MIDDLE PANEL PATTERN
- 1 – 2 = Length of the skirt on the folded side.
- 1 – 5 = Waist round/8
- 1 – 3 = 5″
- 5 – 4 = 5″
- Draw a line from 3 – 4
- 2 – 6 = 14″ – 16″ approx. This is the bottom round. READ THE TIPS FOR THE MARKING OF THIS POINT.
- SIDE PANEL PATTERN
- 7 – 8 = Waist round/8 + 1.5″
- 8 – 9 = Length of the skirt on open side.
- 8 – A = 5″
- Draw a line from A – B
- 9 – 10 = 15″ – 17″ approx. This is the bottom round.
- FOR MARKING POINT 2 – 6, WHAT YOU NEED TO IS, FROM THE SELVEDGES SIDE MARK THE POINT 7 – 8. AND THE REST OF AREA WILL BE YOUR 2 – 6.
- SO BEFORE COMPLETING THE MIDDLE PANEL YOU NEED TO MARK THE SIDE PANEL TOP PART.
Now cut the middle panel and side panel of the skirt pattern.
- Fold the fabric in 4 layers, inside out.
- Keep the folded side towards you.
- On folded side keep the middle panel, and mark the skirt pattern.
- On the selvedges side keep the side panel, mark and cut.
