If you follow me on facebook you would have seen me talking about some abayas I designed and may even have seen some preview pictures of them, well today I’m just going to post full pictures of those abayas and some other stuff. Both abayas have been designed for parties and occasions and obviously not for everyday wear.
I actually designed two abayas one which is sea green with a black lace layer on top and the other a light baby pink with a slit at one side revealing some peachy pink lace.
The first is this black & sea green abaya
This is actually a plain green silky satin type abaya and a black lace abaya which is a bit bigger and longer to be worn over the green one, so they can both be worn separately or with other things. I like clothes which I can change up, adapt and wear again to create a completely different outfit altogether, you’ll see the black lace in action again later on in this post.
The second abaya is a light baby pink one with a slit on the left side
The tailor didn’t actually make this one quite how I wanted it )= It feels a little short (and will definitely be with shoes). I designed this one so that I could wear a corsage or a big brooch wear the slit started to dress it up for parties. The brooch in the pictures is actually a hijab accessory from Unique Hijab Pins. The baby pink abaya is again a soft silky satin fabric but more matte than the sea green one above. This abaya doesn’t quite drape the way I want it to and I’m not sure if that’s a fault in the design, fabric or tailoring.
The next outfit is just that a mix between the above two abaya.
So that’s it for now (= what do you think of these? Like? No like?
