Modern Shalwar with Belt

modren shalwar

In Plain shalwar (in above fig ) there is too much fullness at waist and seat (hips) . But some dislike such bulging of material at waist . To eliminate this , the length is divided into 2 parts which are joined at the seat. The upper part of waist piece (from waist to seat ) is kept plain , while the lower part (from seat to bottom ) is kept as usual. Gathers are taken to lower part while joining it to the waist piece . this helps to get anice look of outwear like khameez.

Measure

1 Full length 75 cm(30)
2 Seat or hips 70 cm (28)
3 Bottom round or roumd to foot 30 cm (12)

This garments requires 2 piece of waist , 2 side pieces , 4 kalis and 2 separate in turns at bottom with interfacing
