What is the difference between Scye depth and Biceps width? My mother's scye depth from a stitched blouse is 6"+ seam allowance or only 6"

vani said...

There was some mistake .I have corrected it.No need to add seam allowance for scye depth .When you stitch arm hole is increased. So no need to add.

Are all measurements to this is with sewing allowance? if so how much of allowance was added. Thanks a lot anyway, this was very helpful.

Hi mam is it not needed to add seam for shoulder.I sewed the darts as per the tutorial mentioned how to sew sari blouse.In this method how to place the darts.How to measure the fron length from a blouse since the darts changes the measurements.

Sudha Raj said...

how to take the shoulder measurement for a low back neck and close in kameez. is there any calculation to follow.please explain.

Thanks,

Ma,

As per the instruction I took the measurement of the chest from the button eye side, I added extra ease allowance of 1 and half inches to the chest/bust and 1 half inch to the waist, and another 1 and half inch for seam allowance.After finishing i found 4 inches more though I sewed in the seam allowance other fittings are perfect except the loose of 2 inches on each side.Where i went wrong, is it not necessary to add the ease allowance as we are measuring on the button eye side.

vani said...

If we use body measurements we have to add ease.while taking measurements from blouse ease has already been added we have add seam allowance.
