1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Sherwani pattern on: March 28, 2014 07:03:25 AM
Hi all.

I've been asked to try and make a Sherwani for a friend and am looking for a pattern.

Its like a long Indian wedding coat for men with a wide lapel and straight cut sides. I've been looking for a pattern for the actual garment but non seem to be available so I'm looking for something like it. I can do the decoration myself but the pattern I need some help with



thank you

figure about one per every inch length of the back, on each side.  You can space them a little bit further, but I wouldn't go more than an inch and a half.  (that's from the center of the eyelet to the center of the next one, not edge to edge.)  It would depend on your height and how high the back was.
(oh, and the 20" waist was for a girl who is all of 4'10", so she's overall a very tiny person, but not frighteningly emaciated or anything- it's the zebra print one in my profile.)

 thanks for the advice. The back is 8".

 4'11" the dear me and I worry about my own lack of inches at 5'1" on a good day with the wind behind me. I do like the zebra print one. I'm aiming for a black and white striped one with  lilac roses

I'm trying to imagine having a 20" waist lol. I'm a hefty wench with a 32"

Now then our eyelets are one part metal with teeth that you bash in and our grommets are two parts that you press but I was only able to find them in plastic. I may have to rethink

 I went shopping this afternoon and went to every hard/homeware store in the area and have never seen so many little gaping fly impressions in my life!!. I think I'll end up ordering online and praying that the entire postal service doesn't decide to strike and they might actually arrive before my birthday (oct 1) so I can make a proper one to go out in. How many would you say needed per corset ?

Grommets in the UK are plastic/PVC and the metal grommets  that are what you call Grommets are called Eyelets to us

The tape thing is a good idea. I may have a shufti at it:).  I wasn't sure about the size of them. We have a homebase here which is about as hardware ish as it gets so I was thinking of taking a trip up there to see if they had anything.   I seem to recall that Eyelets and Grommets are different things in the technical world, prob exacly the same thing in practicality but

thanks. I put something in just to make sure. Is there anything I can use instead of grommets for the test one ?.

I found these on ebay. Would these do for a underbust.

I'm using cut up garden hose as boning in this one because I  don't want that much reduction and its my first one

I found Roethke's tute and I've measured and cut out a paper pattern that looks reeeeally small lol but thats without the  extra to stitch with.

Going to pin it to my  test fabrics tomorrow and sew it up. I'm planning on 3 layers for the test

you do put boning in the test pieces don't you?
