A New Home-Made Abaya!

Here is one of the many pieces of clothing I have sewed. Insha'allah you will enjoy! :)






I found the buttons so interesting! They had the Islamic star in the middle!


Fabric was giving to me as a gift from my Mennonite friends, including the buttons.

    1. 1 day to sew, (normally 3-4 hours but I have a baby on my hands now!), and about 4 hours for the handwork (tacking down the interfacing, fitting it, etc.)

  5. Such unusual material (blue roses?) but very pretty for a house jilbob. I always thought that the Menonites were very plain in the clothing but your friend seems to have excellent ideas.

    I love the buttons too

    1. It depends on the sect of Mennonites, some are more strict than others.

  6. Looks good!

    Did you use a pattern or a pre-existing abaya to sew this?

    1. Normally I make my own patterns, but with this I abaya, I used the east essence Arub abaya (as my husband had bought it for me for eid and I liked the style).
