Sunday, May 29, 2016

I was recently organizing my closet and realized most of my clothes is either for winter or fall. I guess I just never thought summer was coming (lol). Now, that summer is finally here, I need to build up my summer wardrobe. And this abaya is definitely going to fill it up!

If you follow the latest trends, you will notice that open front abayas are coming back into style. And I am absolutely obsessed with them. Now that Ramadan is around the corner, they are so easy to wear and go with pretty much any outfit. Also, making it isn't that difficult either.

Here is my process!

- 2.5 Yards of Lightweight fabric
- Trim of your choice 
- Thread & Scissors
-  Measuring tape

Let's get started:

1.) Know your measurements.
--> This may vary on how wide you want the abaya to be and how long you want it. 
--> Also, measure your arm length, add more inches if you want it to be wider, etc. 

2.) Transfer to Fabric. 
--> Now it's time to move those measurements onto the fabric. Remember to add an l inch or so of seam allowance. 

3.) Cut.
--> Before cutting, double check that your measurements are correct. Trust me, you don't want to make a wrong cut.
--> You will have a total of 1 back piece, 2 front pieces, and 2 sleeves.  

4.) Sew.
--> For this project you will need to sew on: sleeves, the back to the two front pieces. 
--> Also, sew on your trims to border the front pieces and your sleeves. 

5.) Hem away!
--> This part makes all the difference tbh. Even though it can be a bit of a pain, hemming is important. 

6.) Done! Now go slay with your custom abaya.

Let me know what you think!
