HOW TO CUT AND SEW CHURIDAR



Now let us see how to stitch a churidar like the above. Stitching a chudithar top is easy . Accurate measurements , some practice will help you to stitch anything well.


The above is the stitching pattern for the churidar , I've given the readymade measurement for the above .

READYMADE MEASUREMENT

* full length = 105 cm
* Narrow waist = 39 cm
* Bust level = 25.5 cm
* shoulder = 38 cm
* chest = 92 cm
* Waist = 72 cm
* Hip = 100 cm
* sleve legth = 25 cm

measurements according to the diagram

* 1-2 = full length + 3 cm = 108 cm
* 1-6 = arm hole = (chest/4)-2.5 = (92/4)-2.5 = 20.5 cm
* 6-7 = chest loose = (chest/4)+2.5 = 25.5 cm
* 1-10 = narrow waist = 39 cm
* 2-11 = bottom = (chest/4)+10=33 cm
* 1-3 = neck breadth = chest/12 = 7.6 cm
* 1-5 = front neck = chest/8 = 11.5 cm
* u can keep the same length for back neck else back neck = chest/12 = 7.6 cm
* 3-8 = shoulder = shoulder/2=38/2 = 19 cm

Now using the below pics you can have an idea how to stitch a churidar top. Using the stitching pattern i've drawn the pattern on a chart. If your gonna stitch in your measurement , take your churidar and measure it with a inch tape and draw the stitching pattern.

First take the cloth, fold it breadthwise first , next fold it lengthwise . After that you can place the stitching pattern and mark the edges using marking chalk. The material i've used has a lining material too so first im gonna cut the lining material then the outer material. Beginers never cut both materials together.



After cutting the lining material , next im gonna cut the outer material. Be carefull that you dont disturb the cloth. Then cut the outer material.

Next join the front pieces and back pieces by stitching them throughout the edges. Next you will have seperate front and back piece. Next stitch the neck part using crosspiece or lining using extra cloth. Next stitch the shoulders of both piece together.

Next cut the sleeve part, here i have used 3/4th sleeve and have taken only the outer part so that it will be transparent. Stitch the sleeves to the armhole. Next join the left and right sides of churidar. Fold and stitch the openings below hip.


After the sleeves are attached the final outcome , the churidar is ready.

  2. Actually a churidar is a closefitting pant with gathers round the ankle ... you have probably described a kurta for women .

  9. hi thaznim

    thanks for ur reply about umbrella churdar. ur stitching method is very useful and perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  10. thaznim, in umbrella cut frock there r two parts.But umbrella churidar has a single part. Pls explain

    ReplyDelete
  11. for umbrella its single piece right. the umbrella post will help u to sew anarkali salwar.

    For umbrella churidar you just have to cut the top broadly so that u get a umbrella shape. in normal churidar u cut narrow.

    just compare both kinds of churidar u'll get the idea. i'll try to post regarding it soon

  16. the best way to cut sleeve is using a sample sleeve. just keep the sleeve on the cloth and mark its outline , leave extra cloth for stitching, then cut. i'll soon write post regarding it.

  26. hi thanzim,

    thank you so much for this amazing blog on stitching. i love stitching and am inspired to follow my dream of making my own dress by finding this blog.

    i wonder if you can explain about taking measurements for churidar. can you please substitute 1-2 etc with AB [alphabets] like we do in maths diagrams. then it would be more clear for novices like me. i can't understand where the 2.5 and other numbers come from. what exactly is the difference between bust level and chest?

    best wishes

    vidyalakshmi.

  27. Hi
    It is easy to keep the ready dress on the cloth and cut it. but in this method, dress fitting will not be perfect. same in case of blouse.
    So can u pls explain the correct way of taking measurements, cutting patterns and stitching?
    thanx.

  65. Hi, I would suggest make corrections to this post so that people are not confused.

    A KURTA (hindi) or a KAMEEZ(urdu) is the top part of the ensemble, like a shirt. You have written is as a "Churidar" which is wrong.

    A SALWAR is the lower part of the ensemble which is billowy and loose.

    A CHURIDAR pajama is a very tight-fitting lower part of the ensemble. It is called thus because of the extra pleats at the bottom that look like a bunch of churis (bangles). See the lower part of the image here: http://s1.hubimg.com/u/1235860_f520.jpg

    I enjoyed your stitching instructions, but do make the corrections so that your audience does not get confused.

    I was looking for the way to cut the chudidaar payjama when I ran into your bog, but this post even though suggests that it is the method to cut and sew a chudidaar actually shows the way to cut and sew a qameez.
    Do you have a method for chudidaar also?
    btw, I just found out that in South India people call shalwar qameez chudidaars too :). Do you hail from South India?
