Once you cut the pieces, you will have two center pieces along with four side pieces for both front and back.

While stitching, keep both the cut pieces together. Next, place the piece B over A so that the right sides face each other and E and E+ points coincide. Use pins to secure and sew along the entire length of the cloth. Repeat the same procedure with the other side and back side pieces too.

The remaining steps are similar to the straight cut kurti. It is optional to keep the side seams and slit openings. Instead, you can sew the side edges together. Princess-cut kameez will look best when worn with gathering churidars or pants.
