Gotta put the cute shots first!




Okay, so I tried to follow Luxi_here's tutorial to make patiala salwar for my dd, but I really couldn't understand her instructions at all (sorry, luxi!), so I looked at the pictures and did my best from there. I'm still not sure if I did it quite right, so I'm relying on all your expertise to give me pointers on anything strange I may have done!

Front:


Back:


Ankles:


I made the top from a shirt her grandma gave us for reconstruction. Unfortunately I didn't take a picture before I started, but it was basically a button-up collared shirt with panels forming the female shaping (as opposed to just darts sewn in). I cut out the front and back panels.  Took one of the sleeves and made it into two.  A few seams later, et voila!



Close up on my homemade binding (not even cut on the bias, I'm afraid).


What do you think? I'm a little disappointed that the pants are so full and the shirt isn't full enough...looks a little funny to me. DH loves it though...he thinks it's cool that she isn't dressed like every other kid out there.

I agree the pants should be less full and the shirt fuller, but it looks fine anyway!  Grin
And I'm 22, but I swear I'd love to wear an outfit like this xD


DH loves it though...he thinks it's cool that she isn't dressed like every other kid out there.

Cool to hear that, huh? I hope that doesn't change much in her teenage years...  Cheesy

I am sorry that my instructions were'nt clear enough, it was my first elaborate tutorial post and i am still learning the tricks of it. I am glad though that i had posted enough pictures to help you out. As they say a picture is more effective than thousand words...!!!

Actually the 'Patiala Salwar' Pant's Characteristic feature is the 'fullness'. This is traditionally worn with a fitting top so that the fullness of the pant is even more visible. The pant is very comfortable especially for active toddlers. You can add extra interfacing kind of thing at the ankle band as it then allows the pant to stand up and lets in air

Since it's getting to be cold weather here, I decided to make this pair with the legs gathered to a band to keep the air out! ;-) But I can see that the pants are very comfortable for my VERY active toddler! I'm jealous of her and I want to make a pair for myself and my husband! Perhaps next summer I'll release the legs from the ankle band and stiffen them up to let some air in!

Also, it could be that I used too stiff of a material to make the pants and that's why it looks funny to me. If it were a bit more drapy, it might look more natural. Anyway, she loves them, so I'm satisfied. I'll just see if I can make a few changes on the next pair.

I love the pants! I agree that the top could be a little looser but overall you did an excellent job even with the binding.
