~Ramadan Mubarak* 1433~

Asalaamu Alaikum ALL, 
Praying that you all have a blessed Ramadan and
 that your fasts, ibadah and prayers are accepted during this blessed month.

Ramadan is the (month) in which was sent down the Qur'an, as a guide to mankind, also clear (Signs) for guidance and judgment (Between right and wrong). So every one of you who is present (at his home) during that month should spend it in fasting, but if any one is ill, or on a journey, the prescribed period (Should be made up) by days later. Allah intends every facility for you; He does not want to put to difficulties. (He wants you) to complete the prescribed period, and to glorify Him in that He has guided you; and perchance ye shall be grateful.- Surah Al-Baqara (The Cow) 2:185

Be Beauitfu

New Energy: Sewing

Salaams and Saluations ALL,
So....I have a LOT of energy and so I've decided to put all that energy in the sewing!! I've been inspired buy Pinterest to 'JUST DO IT' --lol. I've decided to make a major piece in my EID outfit myself. Thanks to Mimi G and her WONDERFUL blog I have faith in my ability. Below you see her version of Butterick pattern 5650 . She creates fabulous pleats and an obi type belt. Mine will NOT be that fab, but it will be nice. I plan to pair it with a nice structured jacket and white accessories mostly found on Etsy.

Mimi G and her impeccable style

I have started sewing some crafts so I believe I can take it to another level, me. There is also an All White Affair in my area after the EID and I'm thinking about making something for that too. I will either make it lined or wear the proper undergarments because I STILL have an issue with 'all white' being modest *Kanye shrug*

Simplicity 2584  *out of print*

This pattern (Simplicity 2584)is actually out of print ,so you will have to search for it. iA I will make dress longer and the verdict on the sleeves is still out. The event stays that you can have a pop of WHICH pop? Check out Mimi G's take on it here.

I've looked on  Amazon for help with sewing and Mimi actually suggests some books. I mean learning does stop and neither does modest FASHION. As an Imam once told me, everything has a halal.

Check here for updates on these two outfits soon, iA

B Beautiful,
