How to cut kaftan gown
Mark The Width Of The Woman On The Material Or Cloth :
Keep the tape horizontally and mark all the width of the measurement on the cloth, which are :
8 - 2 = DESIRED LENGHT OF THE SHOULDER
Here you mark the lenght of the shoulder to shoulder, divided by 2.
4 - 5 = THE WIDTH OF THE BUST.
The width of the woman bust divided by 4 and add extra 2 inches for sewing allowance. (for example if the bust is 40 inches, then 40 ➗ 4 = 10, 10 ➕ 2 = 12.
Then the width of the bust is = 12 inches.
Then you mark it.
6 - 7 = THE WIDTH OF THE HALF LENGHT.
The half lenght is also divided by 4 and extra 2 inches is added for sewing allowance.
The shape in that diagram is the best for caftan gowns. Its called A-shape gown.
Then draw all the marked width together, like the purple line up n that diagram. THEN YOU CUT.
