Instruction for A-line draft & Flare type draft:

  • Mark the centre points of (1-4) & (12-13) and draw line to join that points.

Cut the line and slash as like as the draft 1. Now you have A-line draft.

  • Draw a straight upward line form the mid point of (12-13) to meet the line (10-11) in A-line draft.

Cut the line and slash to have a flare draft. Refer draft 1 image.

Front: 9-7-6-x’-3-11-13-4’-1                     (9-1) on fold

Back: 8-7-6-x-3-11-13-4’-1                       (8-1) on fold

  • Neck slit opening need only at the circumference of head is lesser than neck circumference.
  • If it is high waist Anarkali use point 11’ instead of 11 in Cutting line instruction.]Triangle panel Anarkali design
  • Here I take Basic A line Kameez draft and open the fold of front & back draft and mark 8 divided equal points at 1” above waist line and Hem line.
  • Join the darts vertically (Refer image)
  • Cut along these lines till to the marked point, it should not cross the line of front & back part.Triangle panel Anarkali draft
