How to stitch collar neck kurta/kameez

Hi, Friends....
Today we'll learn hi-neck collar kameez/top.Today most of gals wear collar top with jeans,leggings and of course with my fav. patiala salwar. Well there are many types of collar kameez/top but today we'll see a very simple collar top which is damn easy to stitch.Usually a collar is made with canvas strip but this collar has only a fabric strip.
The draft will be same that simple kurti.
Cut back neckline at 1/2",the snap follows:

Front neckline: A-B=10"-12":B-C=1"the snap cut as shown.

For collar take fabric strip of length A-C= 33-34" and width A-B= 3-4" or as desired and cut it straight you can use the border design of the fabric. I've used the border.

The first step of stitching any collar kameez/top is to join the back and front.Measure the whole neckline i.e including the front and back.This will be the length of the fabric strip.Fold the strip such that A lies on B and wrong side faces wrong side :) Keep this strip on right side of kurta and start stitching from point B and covering the whole neckline. If you wish you can overlap the collar at point B-C. The snap.

Hey!! your collar is ready.Now join sleeves,and proceed further and complete the kurta.
Snap of my finished kurta. I have attached a flower piece in the middle of neckline.

Happy Blogging.....

  1. After learning from various sites I used to sew, every time there will be a mistake

    either arm hole or neck or other will go wrong.I really felt proud to wear a perfect dress sewed by me of course from yours.

    Padded I mean to say bra being attached so we can lower the back.Also you can teach us lining dress.
