This package 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 skirts, from the South Pacific, Indonesia, and India.
The contemporary-looking short jacket was found in Burma but is similar to jackets of Chinese origin, worn in many areas of Southeast Asia. Front, back, and sleeves are cut in one piece. An underplacket extends the front opening on the right side, and self-bias finishes the faced neckline and is used for handmade 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 inside and out.
A close fit is the mail characteristic of the Choli, as it is both undergarment and blouse for the sari. Shaped center front pieces (darted to fit the figure) and separate side pieces join into a midriff band. Above-elbow sleeves hug the arms; the back is fitted smoothly with darts. An added front underlap fastens with hooks and eyes; self-bias finishes the neckline, softly V-shaped in front and scooped in back.
