I wanted to let you all know that I have added a substantive section of the fabrics international wiki for garments from continental India. Some thirty garments are included in the set, encompassing the salwar kameez, the sherwani and choli, kurta, dupatta and ghaghra, among many others. Although patterns for these are not easy to find, a few references to patterns are provided where these have been identified, many of them free. The whole set may be accessed through the garments by country index on the fabrics international wiki site. It is my hope that more of the BurdaStyle community will feel drawn to experiment with these garments with their fascinating and rich cultural heritage, so we will be able to showcase more creations and projects for these garments from BurdaStyle members!
Please note that I am looking for additional help to complete the information available on these pages. If you have any pertinent information, please contact me either here on the BurdaStyle site or via the fabrics international wiki site.
