Men in all walks of life and for all occasions wear the Kurta shirt in fabrics ranging from lawn to silks in all weights. The Kamiz tunic is worn by women in northern India over narrow Churidar pants. Since 1947, when India became independent, the "Gandhi cap" has been an important accessory of national dress.

The front and back panels of the elegant Kamiz are perfect for showing off a gorgeous length of fabric or as a backdrop for your favourite jewellery. There are thigh-high slits in the side panels. Elbow-length sleeves are fitted by a small underarm gusset. Bias tape, self-fabric or purchased, finishes the inside of the jewel neckline and shoulder openings, which are fastened by bias loops and buttons. The Kamiz is offered in two lengths - above the knee and calf length. Fitting the bias-cut Churidar pants requires attention to your calf measurement, as they should be almost skin-tight in that area. Cut very long, their graceful folds hide the ankle. They are extremely easy to make, and fitted at the waist by elastic or a drawstring. Churidar are meant to be worn under a thigh or calf-length tunic or dress. For fun and fashion, we've added a pattern for the Gandhi Hat made simply in two pattern pieces. Try it in tweed or satin for day or night chic!
