  • I'm uncertain exactly what you are asking. A pattern for one can be found here: http://dansing7.tripod.com/ The stitch used (traditionally) would be a return stich, hand done. Return means that you poke the needle through about 1/8 of an inch across the layers of material, pull the thread, return back to the start and pull again. What you get is a solid line of thread on both sides. Now days whip stitch and sewing stitches are used. Double lines are found in some areas, while a single line of stich with a whip or finishing stitch is used - turn a pair of paints inside out and look at the seam down the leg - you will see that there is the straight stitch which creates the tight seam, and then the outer edge where the two pieces meet is stitched with a loop or wrapping (whip) stitch to prevent the material from coming apart and to add extra strength to the seam. Most machines can do these stitches easily now days. If you meant the embroidered work found on most Salwar Kameez I imagine that traditionally it has been done similar to the hoop method my grandma used to embroidered 'Home Sweet Home'. I believe that many machines can do fairly elaborate embroidered work.
  • Properly. My advice would be not to ruin the material if you don't know where to start sewing the kameez. Get a seamstress instead.
