Carol has posted on the abaya 🙂
It is such a relief to me that it fits! It’s really scary to make something for somebody else without being able to fit inbetween stages. I always put my projects on and off while sewing. I do a lot of sowing in my underwear! (with the curtains closed)
I have a mannequin which I use, it has my size in bust and hips, but a nicer waist…
It’s an antique, from 1880. I have covered it new a few years ago. I’m very fond of it!
And I know what will fit me, but brrr… somebody else is very different!
Here you see the abaya modelled by carol herself.
Or that is what she tell us.
It’s doing such a good modesty job, it could equally well be Nader.
Carol; the hood should be a bit further back on your head,
it’s not meant as the ”Dementor”-look!
anyway: I’m greatly relieved that the hem stops where it should stop, and it
seems to fit!
