I just love hijab, abaya, jilbab, traditional Islamic dressing, and modest clothing and absolutely enjoy writing about them as well as sharing photos of them and helping others.

So much so, I would also enjoy reading your thoughts about hijab, Islamic clothing and modest dressing and comments on the site...

Bisht Abaya Sewing Pattern
by: Umm Aqib

Assalamualaykum Bibi,

Thank you for your query about bisht abaya sewing pattern. Unfortunately, I'm not able to source pattern for this abaya as of now.

Should the pattern become available in the future, I will let you know.

Meanwhile, you could use the sewing pattern of caftan in this website and improvise it following the style of bisht abaya. They are quite similar in pattern.

As for the measurement of the fabric, 45"-60" width by 3.5-4m length of material should suffice; depending on your height and size. This is based on caftan measurement.

Hope that the above might help you with.

Good luck with your sewing!

Let us know your progress and if you like you could post your newly sewn bisht abaya in here too.

Salam & Best regards

Umm Aqib
