OK, let me come to the topic. I have another interesting project to share with you!
I had a new navy blue men’s kurta with stand collar and full sleeves, of course of my husband that didn’t fit for him, I planned to convert it into a girly kurta.
How Did I Convert The Kurta?
1. First work I did was fit check. Checked if shoulder set was proper. It was fine. Waist fit, it was ok. Since the fabric was of clinging type, I didn’t bother to alter the fit.
3. The stole had a beautiful sky blue border with pink picot like finish. I decided to use this border in the collar outline and the sleeve cuff edge. I am not comfortable with very short tops. But, the kurta just reached upper thigh. So, I wanted to increase the length. I decided to attach 10”-12” wide stole body. Kurta would have looked good even in its actual length, just with lace border attachment.
4. I measured the collar outline along with placket line and the sleeve cuff edge. Then I cut one side border of the stole which I had chosen. Those were custom lace for collar outline and sleeve cuff. I hemmed those laces onto the respective areas.
5. Then, I measured along the bottom hemline. Decided the extra length i.e. width of the stole to cut. I hemmed the bottom attachment. Finished! Wait, let me just check how my renovated kurta looks…
Loved it! Just came out as I expected!
