Asalam u alaiQum (peace be upon you) Beautiful people 
In todays post, I am going to share how to cut a Kaftan Abaya. Many of you liked my Kaftan making video and many of the comments were highly requested to make Abaya. I am calling this kaftan Abaya because it is like a kaftan and Abaya. So let us get into the post. 
LINEN FABRIC IN LIGHT PINKThe fabric I am using is Linen and the colour is light pink. Firstly, I fold the fabric in half lengthwise, with the good sides facing inwards. Then I straighten and flatten my fabric out with an iron. One side of the fabric is open and I made a crease on the other side of the fabric that is closed. On this crease, I am going to cut a neckline and measure the length of my sleeves. Then I repeat the process once again by folding the fabric in half lengthwise. Next, I cut off the faulty fabric. It now has four pieces of fabric in layers.If you are making a kaftan then you only need to cut the neckline and stitch by marking bust, waist and hip measurement on the good side of the garment. To make the Kaftan Abaya you have to mark and stitch on the wrong side of the garment. You can watch my detailed video of how to make a kaftan by clicking it. I used my basic bodice pattern in the picture below. My fabric was not wide enough, but just know that the width of the fabric will be going across your shoulders and down your arms, so the wider the fabric, the further down your arm the fabric will hang. This is how I mark the sleeves...
