Patterns - Folkwear #134 South Asian Tops & Wraps
Folkwear #134 South Asian Tops & Wraps pattern contains patterns for three tops: a cropped Burmese Jacket, a side-wrapped Thai Blouse with long sleeves and shaped peplum, and a classic Indian Choli, the bare-midriff fitted blouse worn under saris. Also included are instructions for wrapping a sari in three styles, plus three ways of wrapping lengths of fabric into sarong-style skirts, from the South Pacific, Indonesia, and India. The contemporary-looking short Jacket is worn in many areas of Southeast Asia. Front, back, and sleeves are cut in one piece. Self-bias finishes the faced neckline and is used for hand-made frogs and knotted buttons. Three patch pockets and fold-back cuffs complete the detailing. The Thai Blouse has been adapted from the original to provide better fit. Back and side front are cut in one shaped piece, with additional panels in the center front. A straight neckband crosses to tie at the waist. A close fit is the main characteristic of the Choli, as it is both undergarment and blouse for the sari. Front and back pieces are darted to fit the figure, and above-elbow sleeves hug the arms.
