I have already shared a post on how to stitch Magyar sleeves and in this post I am going to share a tutorial of stitching a kameez with Magyar sleeves.


0 to 1 – length of the kameez
0 to 2 – 1/6 chest + 3""
2 to 3 – 1/4 chest + 1" or 1 ¼ " or 1 ½”
0 to 4 – half shoulder
4 to 5 - sleeve length
0 to 6 – 1/6 round neck + 1/2”
0 to 7 - Back Neck depth (standard = 3”)
6 to 8 - Front Neck depth (standard = 6”)
0 to 9 – Waist length
9 to 10 - ¼ waist + 1” or 1 ¼” or 1 ½”
1 to 13 – 9 to 10 measurement + 4”


Join 3 to 5 through a curve

The opening of a kameez can be taken at 5" or 7" below the 10 measurement.

For stitching a kameez with Magyar sleeves, first measure and note down the body measurements. 

Then take the cloth, open it in the reverse such that the two selve dges of the cloth are on top of each other. Then fold again such that the two ends are on top of each other. 


Mark the measurements directly on the cloth using the construction given above (Or first make a paper draft). Then join all the lines and curves.

Mark "a" 1" from 13 measurement and draw a curve connecting 1, 12 and 13 as shown.

Then leaving 1” extra cloth along the sides, sleeves and bottom of the dress and ½” extra cloth along the neck, cut the cloth.

Stitching has to be done on the marked lines and curves.

Begin stitching by first finishing the neck. Refer FINISHING THE NECK to get details on how it is done. You can also stitch a back opening as shown below and stitch a button.

Short or long Magyar sleeves can be stitched. Once the neck is ready, double fold and stitch the sleeve ends. Then start stitching from the sleeve ends and along the sides of the kameez till you reach the slit (opening). Check out STITCHING THE SIDES for a more detailed explanation. Finally finish the bottom end by double folding the extra cloth and stitching. Your kameez with Magyar sleeves is now ready. Turn the dress to the reverse and over lock the cloth to prevent threads from coming out.

I have tried to explain the method as clearly as possible but it is advisable to use your discretion while stitching this dress.
