Folkwear Patterns - Tibetan Chupa
About the Tibetan Chupa
The Tibetan Chupa is a wrapped jumper with a centuries-long history in Tibet. It is traditionally worn with added layers of aprons, woolen sashes, and a panel coat. Worn alone or with a blouse, the Chupa is a beautiful contemporary garment.
The Chupa features an asymmetrical wrap front, front and back shaping darts, wide neckband, and simple faced armholes, and unique side extensions that wrap around the back to tie in front. The resulting silhouette is slim, yet the extensions enable enough leg room to make walking easier than most wrap skirts. Both the Chupa and Chupa inspired wrap skirt can be made in the traditional ankle length or below the knee length.
The pattern is printed on high quality white tissue paper, and contained in a generously sized zip-lock bag. There is plenty of room for your traced pattern.
Make your Tibetan Chupa in medium-weight cottons and blends such as denim, corduroy, velveteen, and poplin; medium-weight linen; medium-weight wool such as flannel, gabardine, and tweeds; medium-weight silk such as noil or tussah.
The Tibetan Chupa is a multi-sized patterns including sizes XS - XL ( bust 30 1/2" [78 cm] to 46" [117cm]).
