    Salaam Aleykum wr wbr,ughtii
    Use, the one u already have, if u don’t have one buy one insha Allah. So u can use the jilbab as pattern

    Jilbab is very easy to make a masha Allah, Success!!
    may Allah swt make it easy for u Ameen

    BTW Why are u shy to ask that question? u right why buy a expensive jilab in the shop when u can make it very easy ur self. The female companies of Muhammes (saw) make everything them self. Allot of female don’t know even how to cook, sorry men aswell.

    But in my opinion a women should try to learn how to sew, cause its better to use ur free time on that then watching tv as a hobby. U can make abayas and jilbab ur self.Also u can help ur husband to make his trousers and khimes shorter.
    They want to extinguish Allah's Light with their mouths, but Allah will not allow except that His Light should be perfected even though the disbelievers hate (it).)- It is He Who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth, to make it superior over all religions even though the idolators hate (it).) Surah Al-Tawbah 32-33

      Yeah i was thinking of using one of mine as a template.
      but ive never sewed anything in my life before, im worried it will look a mess!
      ive never really used a sewing machine either.
      does it take long to make?

      you right, aldhamdulillah. why is everything so pricey these days!?

        Well done you!

        Use the one you got, it's very simple only YOU can make it complicated, I think you do the body first, then the arms,

        All straight lines and a few curves really, piece of cake sis,

        All the best.

            :wswrwb: ukhti, sorry i dont have any patterns or even know how to sew a jilbab, i always get stuck with adding the arms pieces , necklines, and sewing the shoulders straight maybe some sisters here can give tips on getting that right

            there is a sister who makes them at very reasonable price though alhamdulillah, the site is here and pics of the jilbabs at the bottem

            "O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you swerve, and if you distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well-acquainted with all that you do." [An-Nisa 4:135]

            The Prophet :saw: said:

            "Whosoever leaves off obedience and separates from the Jamaa'ah and dies, he dies a death of jaahiliyyah. Whoever fights under the banner of the blind, becoming angry for 'asabiyyah (nationalism/tribalism/partisanship) or calling to 'asabiyyah, or assisting 'asabiyyah, then dies, he dies a death of jaahiliyyah."

            Narrated 'Abdullah:

            The Prophet, said, "Abusing a Muslim is Fusuq (evil doing) and killing him is Kufr (disbelief)." sahih bukhari


            "Creeping upon you is the diseases of those people before you: envy and hatred. And hatred is the thing that shaves. I do not say it shaves the hair but it shaves the religion!

            By the One in whose Hand is my soul, you will not enter paradise until you believe, and you will not believe until you love one another. Certainly, let me inform you of that which may establish such things: spread the greetings and peace among yourselves."

                *bump*

                Contemplating approaching a needle again, but the thought of attempting to do something like copy an existing jilbaab sounds rather nefarious to me, I'd somehow end up destroying the new material and the old one too

                Any surefire patterns? Nothing fancy..

                  My cousin brought a jilbab from saudi and it was sewn frm just two pieces, the sleves were cut out with the main piece of the jilbab so all u have to do is sew the back and the front....ur gona need silky material though seeing as thers no shoulder stitch but it lukd nice and loose

                  jilbabs are actually easier to make however if uve never sewn before, plz get professional help..or at least someone who knows how to operate a sewing machine. lol

                      If you've never operated a sewing machine before, it won't be very easy then. In the beginning, its soo difficult to sew ,,,even getting a line straight , you'll have to stitch, open , stitch, open...:p

                      Before you start sewing bigger garments, you'd first need to practice on smaller items like caps, bibs, frocks etc.

                      No wonder the entire tailoring course takes 1 or 2 years to complete :p

                        Re: jilbab/abaya sewing patterns

                        The weird Muppet I can be at times..........I have actually made 2 of my own abayas...and im contemplating making another one, because I have some gorgeous "abaya" material.

                        If I had the time and I wore abayas regularly, I would make my own all the time....Inshallah in the future.

                        I dont particularly like fancy abayas so mine are very practical and simple with lots of attention to detail, Jenicca style.....one of them was a chocolate brown one, with cream piping on the edges of the sleeves with a Moroccan style slits at the side. Ive had it years

                        Its nice when you can make your own stuff cuz u can adapt it to suit your individual taste and style

                        However if you are a novice Id advise you to take a dressmaking course, if you are in the UK the City and Guilds courses are really good. If you have a good tutor you can adapt your pattern making to what you want to make once youve covered the basics.

                        I studied this whilst at uni for a year at the weekends and I am....well my mum forced me to do it, but Alhumdollilah, now I am so glad....because I can make my own stuf the way I want it.

                        If you’ve never sat on a sewing machine before Id advise you to get to grips with that before attempting anything else.

                        Charity shops and second hand book shops do good sewing books to pick up basic handy tips you will need, such at stitching, hemming, adding interfacing, basic pattern making etc etc But its so much easier with a teacher, Is there a seamstress in your community willing to give you a few lessons??

                        Ummm first one I made a pattern, second abaya I shaped the bottom bit from the armhole downwards freehand. One of the main reasons was I wanted a closed abaya for Hajj rather than the open front button ones that might risk opening up.

                        My mum offered to buy one of my choice because I spend so much time faffing around over it.....but making it is so much nicer!

                        One more thing….if you are gonna make one….practise on some cheapy material first…..

                        Good Luck Pm me if you want lol…..

                          ohhh my...this thread is so old

                          well i tell you now, i never did sew anything and dont intend to risk it!, i found a few reasonably good priced shops

                          Ive bought one from there, its really good quality mashaAllah, and i got a free perfume with it! Would recommend.

                          I think you can find a few good buys on ebay now aswell. Theres quite a few shops that sell on there, so theyre brand new abayas.

                            It's good to learn to sew clothing. It shouldn't distract us from other important matters though. If time is an issue why not buy ready made jilbabs for good prices instead?

                            This shop has a few good models in different colours and the prices for affordable prices.
