Pattern: Large Salwar by eqos Pattern: Large Salwar by eqos
My patterns are free to use for private, noncommercial purposes. DO NOT distribute my patterns as your own. DO NOT sell my patterns. Link back to this page if you repost this pattern else. Don't be a dick! Give me credit for my work!


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. :)

Also, I'm making this for a larger person - so while the fit looks much better than the XL version - it wouldn't be too drastic a change if I added an extra inch or two to the 11" gusset width, would it?  I know it'll take an inch out of the legs.

Hi!

Thank you so much for this pattern - I can actually wrap my head around this, and I suck at geometry.  I just wanted to confirm that the gusset is cut at the same distance from the top line (13") on both the front and the back pants, right?  Or is the point a little further down on the back of the pants?

yup it works gets a little interesting around the high points of the crouch, but you just make it fit the best you can and it works fine. I made my first set in black likely make a white set as well.

Hello im new here and im planning on making my own salwar out of 100% black linen (im new to linen). How much will linen shrink if washed? Does cold water on delicate cycle prevent shrinkage?

I've had my linen pieces shrink unpredictable amounts, but using cold water to wash and medium heat to dry definitely helps prevent shrinking.

Thank you, for the info. Sorry for late reply being exactly 6 months ago, yes I made 2 salwar with 2 tunics out of 100% black linen it was nice. I actually bought a big plastic bucket from rite aid for hand washing the garments, I do not plan to place in the washer, the dryer is unnecessary I will just line dry it on clothes hangers, due to me paying for it and the time and effort that went into making it.

I also noticed that linen is expensive and after doing research on it I know why. The fiber production is labor intense and time consuming.

I made myself a linen shirt (linen rayon mix) and have washed it like i would all my other clothes [hot water and what not] and it didn't shrink. tho if you want to test, stitch around the edges of a scrap piece of fabric and wash it like u would. also the fabric bolt should have washing instructions :>

It does it says to wash cool on delicate cycle. I think that hand washing it will make best results researching linen it said to have some antimicrobial properties seems that it doesn't need often washing like cotton does as it is known to contain sweat and house the odor causing bacteria. Anyway thanks for the reply.

I'm still very confused about how this is put together. it looks very straightforward, but the "rotate the gusset" has thrown me off. I even tried what I thought you meant with some paper and it just made no sense... could someone clarify please? preferably with some pictures or video or something?

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! :-)

I love these pants. They turned out sooo well. I added some elastic to the waste and the ankles for a comfortable fit and I LOVE THEM. Heres a pic of my cosplay ( [link] ) its not the best pic of the pants but its all I have right now. I sometimes wear these pants as pj bottoms cause their soo comfortable. Thank you sooo much! My friends have cosplays they want me to use this pattern for too cause they liked mine so much lol. Ill get some more pics if i end up making them.

... Erm ^^"... Well, that must be a silly question to you, but I'm not used to english patterns, and I don't understand the "@13" you put at the top of the gusset... Does it mean its angles have to measure 13 degrees, or I am a complete idiot XD ?

eqos Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2012   Artisan Crafter
No sorry, it's not very clear. It means that the point starts 13 inches down from the top of the piece.

I recently made pants from this pattern... no photos as yet, but they are wonderfully comfy! I ended up gathering the waist and putting a more fitted waistband on them.
