Hi,
I'm a regular reader of your blog and find it a lot useful for a beginner like me. I've been looking for a tutorial to daft and sew Kali Kurta, but was unsuccessful! Could you please post a detailed tutorial( drafting, cutting and sewing) of the same? I'm sure it will be a great help for a lot of people. Keep up the good work and thank you so much.
