      1. You’ve made all the patterns n instructions in such a simple and easy to follow way….this is for sure helpful in sewing our own clothes to begin with…Thanks Keerthi Ezhil

        1. Hi… Ashwini Bhat… When I was start sewing as a beginner…I was searched simple tutorials…but that search made me upset. I keep in mind this tutorials must understandable for beginners also…

  2. Very useful tutorial. Am loving as a beginner. However, I would like to add a note that, when I stitched gathering pant using same measurements, it is loose from hips to knee. From knee to ankle it’s perfect. So what should be done? Measurements are
    Full length 37, hip 41,knee round 16,calf round 14,bottom round 12, waist to knee 20.
    Please correct me in leaving ease. Also, I want proper fitted pants and comfy one.

  3. Thanks to you, Keerthi Ezhil, now I can sew comfortable Churidar Salwar this summer in California. Your instructions are very clear and precise – your pattern is very good.

    I love this style, especially for warm weather.
    Best regards, Jill
