Another Home-made Abaya!

So today I finished my new practical abaya, that will work for me while I am pregnant, breastfeeding, and when I am neither of those! This abaya is my very own pattern, I made it completely by scratch.


The sleeves are large and comfy, there is also an invisible zipper allowing me to be able to breastfeed, without it being obvious that there is a zipper. 


I use elsatic to keep it where I want it (below my bust line) also allowing more gathers!


It is very wide, no more tripping because of a narrow skirt/abaya!


It is roomy enough for pregnancy.

  4. Salam alayki sister MashaAllah it is wonderful. You did a brilliant job and it looks so professional. So hamdulillah you can make a business out of it if you choose to. Did it take long? I would like one just like this. So you are making abayah's that are good for breastfeeding? I hope inshaAllah it will be worn for what it was made for real soon! he he he

    1. Wa alaikum salam, thank you. :) It wouldn't have taken me as long as it did if I had everything I needed handy. I have to wait 2 weeks to get the rest of the things I needed. As this is my own pattern, it took quite a bit of adjust to get it right, but now that I know how to make it work, I won't have that issue again. :)

    1. Ahhh thanks! Well, I am not sewing and selling. Maybe if you lived in my city I would, but I think I wouldn't be satisfied with my work by measurements only (afraid that it isn't well fitted and all, do you know what I mean?)

  8. assalamualaikum wa rahmatulahi wa barakatu!!! !

    Umm AHMAD!
    hee hee

    so can I order one from you in black?? loolll
    ! I love it sis masha'Allah very pretty! (just one thing, and please don't take this in a negative way) but i hope insha'Allah when you go out in public that your hijab is long enough to cover your chest! I know in these photo's you are just showcasing the cinching @ the waist! but you know, some men just don't know how to lower their gaze!! GROSS RIGHT?! ...(I know you wouldnt go out without covering your chest anyhow, but just reminder in case we all forget sometimes!!! )

    1. Wa alaikum salam, yes, of course I would be properly covered. :) You see the part of my scarf that is hanging? Normally I pin it to the other side of my shoulder for coverage. This was only for the purpose of being able to see the details of the abaya front. :)

      Thanks for the reminder though. :)

    I love your abaya; great pattern and so practical. Also the colour is beautiful although I mainly wear black.

    1. Wa alaikum salam ukhti,

      Alhamdulilah I am glad you are enjoying it.

      Masha'allah, I am happy you find the pattern nice, it is of my own creation. :) I like to wear black as well, but at the same time I enjoy colors as well. :)

      Jazakalkhair for stopping by and taking the time to comment.

      More posts are to come insha'allah. :)

  11. Asalam waliykum sis.

    You made this look soooo easy to make. But in reality it is not. Mashallah looks very professional. Has inspired me to try and make one... one day... maybe soon.
    I used to make moroccan party dresses years ago about 8 years ago. So inshallah i havnt forgotten everything. I would love to make my own abayas, fitted and made for my measurements. I always have a problem with shop bought ones... always too tight on the arms, and the sleeves way to long.
    Inshallah i will try it.

    Thanks for the post :D

    1. Me too, that is why I sew my own, as I can never find any that "fit" me right.

  12. Asalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,
    I am new to your blog mashallah, and love this abaya!!!!
    I also like the other one you made (with the fabric that was a gift).
    Mashallah you are so talented!! I read you don't sell abayas...but
    maybe you would be willing to give a detailed step by step picture
    tutorial!
    I would love to learn for myself and to make them for my daughter,
    Inshallah!!!

    1. Wa alaikum salam sister.

      Well, actually, I have a youtube channel that shows me creating this particular pattern. :) If you already have an abaya that fits your daughter you could easily draw a pattern from that. :) Just remember there has to be seam allowance added. :) Happy sewing sis!
