There  are several different patterns of kameez/ kurti. I have discussed a few basic patterns in my earlier post and in this post, I am sharing some more Indian kameez patterns.

1. Shoulder kalli

      This type of kameez resembles the princess cut in volume and design. The only difference is that the joints start from the shoulders and not the arms.

2. Neck gathering

      This type of kameez has gatheings at the neck and the dress is quite loose. Hence a belt or band is tied around the waist.

3. Overlapping

      Here one part of the top overlaps the other upto the waist or fully. It can be either real overlapping or false overlapping with a small opening at the neck.

4. Kameez with kallis

      In this type, 2 or more kallis ( extra pieces ) are added to increase the volume of the dress at the lower part.

5. Kameez with yoke

      Yoke is an extra piece that is stitched at the neck area. It is usually embroidered and has different shapes and patterns. 
 6. Kameez with gatherings

      In this type of kameez the upper part is same as A line kameez whereas the lower part has slight gatherings a few inches below the hips.

      This type of kameez is usually short and has gathers a few inches below the the hips.

      This type has gatherings at the top and is slightly loose because of the gathers. Hence it is usually stitched with a thin material to reduce the volume and create a flowing effect.

      These three types of kameez are usually worn with churidhars.
