So I recenlty discovered that there is more to sewing than just a needle and thread.
Geometry, Creativity, Skill, Precision, Patience and Time.
Yes it IS rocket science.
[modest]wear creations coming soon
finally bought the machine to take place of the Queen. Sewing and tailoring has commenced.
[modest]wear focusing on variations and creative forms of Abayas, Hooded Abayas, Burqas, Niqabs, Caftans, Underscarfs, Khimars, Maxi skirts and Loose-fit pants.
i have a recent obsession with Lady Ponchos, hooded and unhooded ones.
pictures of the process will come up

My routine is straight stitching, zigzag sewing, automatic embroidery, overcasting, blind stitching,button sewing, buttonhole sewing, binding, zipper sewing, hemming, twin needle sewing, quilting. With my lunch breaks I thread my needles, wind my bobbins and such. Evening settles in… i’m hidden in dust filled corners – morning sails in and my mechanisms continue to be abused. Though she is ancient and tainted , i must say, The Queen still reigns.
sadly, my queen sewing machine has to sit aside – it’s only job will be looking pretty and attractive for a while ’cause it doesn’t work. I’m investing in a brand new very dull looking technical machine, we’ll call it princess as the queen still reigns. If Allah wills i’ll be making clothes in 2 weeks or so.
Faith – not just 5 roman letters squeezed together to create a common household word. Faith is life. The way i present myself to the commentators has to exude the blissful air of Islam.
finding the type of clothing that exemplifies my undeniable individuality and yet ties in with my Faith and Way of Life` is a huge challenge. Instead of complaining about it i chose to put matters into my hands. Sew the clothes!
If you can’t find it – make it!
