      1. Dear selvan your patiala tutorials good but since am a beginner want to know how the cloth is to be folded in two or four layers

  2. dear selvan want to know how to old the cloth in two lyers or four i was taught in four layers am just beginner then joining leg kali pieces can you make it a bit clear anu videos of this? please suggest

    1. Sorry for the delay…Amritha prabhu.. U have to fold ur fabric once(now u have 2 layers) and cut the folded line, because this pattern don’t need any folded area. Then mark waist band and leg side pieces at any one side and cut. The whole balance fabric is used for Kali pieces…if u want more details about this cutting instruction.. I’ll prepare some detailed pictures for u..

      1. sure please can u give me more details as to how to cut waist band and leg side pieces and from which part of the cloth will the cloth be sufficient then how will kali pieces be cut with balance cloth we need 2 leg pieces waist band single poece or join? cn you make these clear

        1. can you please make clear how to cut waist band and legside pieces single piece or join you need 2 pieces for both right it can be cut from any piece of cloth cut from joint will the material be sufficient how much cloth for average hieght can you please give detailed pictures please

          1. Amritha prabhu… U have to cut 2 separate leg side pieces and 4 separate kali pieces. First fold the cloth as lengthwise, now u have 2 layers(cut the folded line)… Then mark leg side pieces and waistband at the raw edge side. Then use the whole remaining materials for Kali pieces… If u cut Kali pieces with 4 layers, that increase waste of materials.. Patiala should have more pleats, that’s why.. I suggest 3.5mtrs… U can do it with less pleats asper your convenient.. U can do it with 2.5 mtrs also..

  6. Thanks for the given details .it is very useful for me, i always confused about the measurment but now i won’t. Thanks again.

  7. Dear Madam,

    This is with reference to your draft of a patiala salwar.
    My reference is to this step:
    (0-1)& (2-3) = (p-r) & (q-s) = (Salwar Length – Waist Band Length) + 1½“= (41”-8”) +2½” = 35½”
    I think this should read as (0-x) & (3 to y) because that will indicate the length of the patiala salwar – length of the waist band and not (0-1) & (2-3).

    Please let me know if I am right.

    Thank you,
    Subhashree Srinivasan
