Method of cutting chudidar by preparing a bias bag (method 2)









Turn the bag in such a way seams do not fall on the portion below the knee.

Draft    is placed on the bias bag as shown in the figure and pattern pieces are cut.

The green dotted line is the stitching line on the bag,behind the draft

Practice preparing the bias bag with some waste material and then do the actual one.

hi vani,
can u pls explain what is bias and a bias bag? I am not aware of it.

hi vani,
my tailoring teacher says normal pant material is not enough for cutting a gathering pant. we have to do some patchwork in that. pls explain that too. I am very eager to learn how to stitch gathering pant.

Hi! Geetha
Please see the older post

Geetha said...

Vani Amma ,
I saw the older post but for chudidhar when we are stitching we are not able to get the correct finishing and it is slightly tight below the knee and the material is tending to tear . i need more gathers at the bottom . what to have i chudidhar ( like the one we get from shop ) . Please suggest me

vani said...

If you want more gathers near the ankle keep the length more.if it is tight at the knee draw an other line
parallel to the original line 1/2"out side taper and join near the seat.

Geetha said...

Vani Amma ,
I tried but not getting the good finish and the material near the knee postion is very tight and if we take outer the chudidhar is very loose and not getting the correct finish . sorry,I you could suggest it will better or video ( you tube )of chudidhar will be better Once again sorry .

Hi,

I am self-learner in sewing and find your blog very helpful. Thanks so much for taking your time effort to create these posts for us. I have a quick question. How many yards/meters should I buy for a simple kameez and chudidhar? My height is 165cms and average built. What fabrics would work? Would finewale corduroy work? Or should I get knit? Thanks again.
