Patiala Salwar for my darling - Oh my god she is so cute. May be it looks like i am boasting or going overboard, i really really feel is she is so cute in this dress. This is one of the traditional dresses in India.

I had sewn one for myself and posted in general section, had several requests for tutorial, decided to one and though why don't i do it on my daughter's measurements, so two things get done at same time. A tutorial and a lovely dress for my oh so lovely daughter. Made a top (recon) and a matching band and using remaining material a matching dupatta as well (shawl)

Now lets get on with business. Have a look at action shot first, before moving onto tutorial

Action Shot


View of Top - Recon from an old (Very old) t-shirt of mine cut off and bottom half being added to match the salwar


View of Salwar


Now lets move on to the tutorial

You would need the following measurements

Waist
Seat
Waist to Seat Length
Waist to Toe Length
Ankle Circumference

Side Piece Construction

0-1 = Length - (waist to seat)
0-2 = 1/3 Seat - (waist to seat)
0-5 = 1/2 Material width (44 inches width material preferred. Approx 3 metres required for adult, i made this one with an old dupatta (shawl) measuring 2 metres)
2-3 = 0-5
5-5' = 1/2 inch (to give a slant)
1-4 = 1/2 ankle circumference

Join 0-2-1-4-3-5'

This makes the Side piece. Cut 4 pieces (2 + 2 opposite sides)

Centre Piece Construction

0-1 = Length - (waist to seat)
width = 11 inches for adults (i have used 6" for my little daughter, the more the width, the more the number of pleats and hence more the fullness)

Cut 2 pieces of this center piece

Wasit Band Construction

0-1 = waist to seat
0-2 = 2 inches
width of waist band = 1/2 seat + 4" ( i have used 2" for my daughter)

Cut 2 pieces of Waist band

Bottom Cuff Construction

Height = 4 inches for adults ( i have used 2 " for my daughter)
Width = 1/2 ankle + 11 inches (for adults) ( i have used 6" for my daughter)

0-1 = Height
0-2 = 2 inches extra for waist string loop
1-4 = width

Cut 2 pieces of bottom cuff

Just to give a hint of how the cut pieces will look


Now lets get on with how to do it

Step 1: Join the side pieces with centre piece for each leg. As shown in below picture


Repeat it for other leg as well

After joining pieces for a single leg (side n center joined together) it will look like this


Step 2: Sew the waist bands together 1-2

Step 3: Fold the joined side n center piece and find the midpoint. from there gather on either sides of mid-point in such a way that the gathered piece's width equals width of 1 piece of waist band.

Repeat for other joined piece



Step 4: Sew the crotch of side piece A & Side piece B together.


Step 5: Place the right side of bottom cuff to the wrong side of joined side n center piece at the bottom, sew


Fold the cuff to right side of side n center piece and sew after hemming it.


Step 6: Sew the leg portion of Side piece A & Side Piece B separately


Step 7: Make a drawstring and insert it into the waistband loop.

Your patiala salwar is ready to wear.

I love it! Thanks for the tutorial! There are a lot of cute clothes for kids out there but many are so impractical - and this one is both: practical and cute!

Thanks for all your encouraging comments. This is my first full fledged tutorial with step by step instructions. Hope it was clear enough.

The bottom i.e., the salwar is made of chiffon type material. Patiala salwar looks good in flowy kind of fabrics. Hope this helps.

The top is a recon from my old t-shirt hence that is knit.
