Ghagra Skirt










Measurements:

Skirt Length
Waist
Waist Band width = 2”

 Method 1:







Place the paper draft on the cloth  and cut.

















Construction:

(0-1)      =     Skirt Length – Waist Band width + 1”
(0-2)      =      1/6 waist
(1-3)      =       (0-2)  * 2
Note:   Add seam allowance 1/2" to the both sides of each pc. 


Method 2:



Fold the material i.e.,2 layers as lengthwise. Mark it directly on the cloth and cut.

(0-1)= skirt length-waist band width 2"

(0-2)= 1/2 of (2-3)

(2-3)= 1/6 waist

(1-4)= (2-3) *  2

(3-6)=(5-8)=  (1-4)




(6-7)  =  (4-5) =  (2-3)
 Note:  Add 1/2" seam allowance to the both side of each piece for stitching.
















Waist Band:

(0-1)      =        waist band width 2”
(2-3)      =        (0-1)
(0-2) & (1-3)    =   ½  Waist + 1”

  3. Thanks for appreciation. I use MSPAINT to make pattern drawings and for adding text I use Picasa.Then, I have one more software named Batch Water Mark for adding text on pattern.
    This is basic pattern of Ghagra skirt.
    I made this skirt with 12 pcs.
    so, if you want to make this type of skirt , take the measurement -
    waist divided by how many pcs you need
    for example,take 1/12 waist.
    refer method 2, (2-3) = 1/12 waist
    (1-4) = (0-2)*2 + 4"(more flare)
    (0-2) = {(1-4) - (2-3)} / 2
    [i.e., (2-3) = 3"
    (1-4) = 3"*2= 6" + 4" = 10"
    (0-2) = 10" - 3" = 7"/2= 3.5" ]

  8. Thank you for the directions. I'm new to sewing and am trying to create ghagra skirts for a dance that I am choreographing. Once the fabric is cut, how do you sew them together? Is there a specific technique that should be used?
