Pattern: Large Salwar by eqos Pattern: Large Salwar by eqos

This is very simple to make, but people tend to be confounded by it because it's so different from modern pants.

Rotate the gusset 90" from how it's drawn, and connect the large angle with where the small angle was cut out (at the crotch). and the small angles at the ankles of the legs. Each side of the diamond goes down the legs.

If you use this pattern on DA, I'd like to see what you made. :)

My new sewing machine is arriving tomorrow, these pants will likely be the first project. What type of material was used in the picture?

This was a thin cotton in a plain weave. Very light and flowy, but probably not durable enough for rough usage.

Not going to use them for farming or anything! LOL Just part of my costume for a community theater production. :-)

I dunno, theater can be pretty rough on clothes ;) A lot of people use these patterns for LARPing where they're sword fighting and stuff, so that's where fabric choice matters a lot.

Will find out soon enough!

Anyway, I made up a pair over the weekend. I had to consult a more experienced sewer to explain what you meant by "turn the gusset 90 degrees", but once she did it was easy-peasy! A little hard to wrangle up that much fabric around the waist to get the drawstring pulled, but once it is, no worries. Very flowey and terribly comfortable!

Thanks so much for the pattern! Saved me a nice chunk of change! :-)
