More and more hijab…

I always love it when I come across new hijab pictures. The first two styles are gorgeous but although I love my makeup, I would never go this far:

Which style did you like the most minus the makeup?

  2. elena says:

    Top right… the brown one. feminine and nice

  3. CHELEA says:

    I like the first and second one, however, I do wonder how alot of these styles look from the back…. The back would give me a better idea of how to create them myself.. I enjoy all of your posts..

  4. Kholod says:

    I would love to copy the second one! The several layers are wonderful.

  5. aliya says:

    The second one is beautiful.

  6. Sharshura says:

    I like the blue colors. I know we are not suppose to comment on the make up but i find the autumn leaves on third one, interesting.

  7. awa says:

    Like the blue one (but minus the bindi) and minus the makeup-as you said. I dont think Bindis are for muslims- creates even more confusion betw muslims and hindus. lol

    I wonder how they did the brown one, I like the style.
    Also. is it just me or do they look like aliens? Love the hijabs though. Keep up the great blog, I’ve found so much inspiration in it! I may even have to start sewing again.

  13. Saliha says:

    The second one is so beautiful.

  14. mumble says:

    This blog is making it very difficult to stay away from the fabric store. ๐Ÿ™‚
    What are you going to make?

  16. caraboska says:

    Sorry about that, I just tried to submit this comment with the wrong user name by accident… Here it is with the right one.

    InshaAllah I’m going to be redoing my entire wardrobe in the end. For starters, a bunch of simple trousers, shell blouses, skirts, underdresses. All the stuff that it’s nearly impossible to get in my size – has to fit AND have a high enough neckline AND above all be long enough.

    Then I want to do a whole bunch of stuff. I have my heart set, for example, on a highly embellished version of,

    the full galabiya version, probably all in linen, off-white with off-white on black soutache applique on the front, back, cuffs and hem, maybe some other embellishment as well, with a couple of extra side panels or something to that effect for more ease. InshaAllah I’m going to make a black pair of trousers and a long off-white shell dress to put underneath, and an off-white shayla with a border like on the cuffs and hem of the galabiya.

    I’ve also thought up a sort of coat version of the galabiya which has huge piecework underarm gussets and a truly unique form of embellishment which I will keep to myself for now inshaAllah. It might have some strong color accents and use different kinds of fabrics, and I might even quilt it. But I haven’t even drawn the design on paper, much less anything else ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Or, for example, this dress

    InshaAllah I’ll cut it long, have two inches (5 cm) or so of trouser peaking out from the bottom, make the front panel of lace, if need be add a shell to fill in the neckline, and put this coat over it (if I can leave the coat open enough to see the front of the dress, which I have yet to figure out):

    And I found a wonderful head covering option for this today: use some kind of opaque underscarf that covers the neck too (maybe an al-amira?), then drape this (silk velvet, apparently at an obscenely low price!) loosely over it:

    If I manage to do all that, then my only problem will be the shoes – at size 11.5/12 US, 44 Italian, I’ll probably have to have them custom made…

    So, what are you dreaming of making? Tell you what, when we’ve inshaAllah finished something worth showing, maybe we can get Basbousa to have a little fashion show here? In the meantime, have to go and serve dinner to my cats and get to bed ๐Ÿ˜€

    Salaam sisters.
    I like the second one, too. But here in Europe so much layers could be problematic :-))

    you didn’t aprove my comment,maybe i wrote something offensive,if i did then i apologize cause of my bad english
    peace to you

  20. bananafofana says:

    Well dang girl, that’s one heck of a vacation you’ve got planned. I was just thinking of maybe some nice wide-leg pants and few silk scarves. I thought it might be fun to paint a few. I am humbled by your stichery skills (maishallh!) May all your garments come out even better than planned (inshallah).

  21. caraboska says:


    I’ve not done a lot of sewing, but Allah has provided what was needed to get the job done. I recommend, for example, the Vogue Sewing Book, which my Mom gave me ages ago, and Folkwear usually has very thorough directions, historical info, etc.

    On the other hand, it seems Allah has provided an admirable skill in painting, for you to be able to contemplate such a project as what you mention. I would probably have to get someone else to do it for me. Must be fun to be able to embellish your own hijabs that way – Masha’Allah!

  22. caraboska says:

    PS bananafofana, here’s a pattern you might like:

    Insha’Allah I will be ordering it soon myself. May your projects be beautiful and comfortable and contribute to remembrance of Allah when you wear them!

    Muslim hijab is to cover your hair and your neck, and what up with all of the make up, this is not what its about.

    7sbi Allah wa ne3m alwakeel, Allahoma ehdi almuslimeen.

  24. reem says:

    I love the styles very artistic, and who doesn’t like the make up it is very nice, mashallah. Keep up the good workl. ๐Ÿ™‚
