I’m typing and laughing right now; I remembered after making this Abaya gown for my mom, I refused to give her. The gown fit me well, even though I made it with her measurement. It’s a free gown. I later gave it to her after rocking it for that day. Lol! She was happy with what I made for her; you can tell from the picture that it fit her body well.
The pattern is ready for download. I’m a size 16 (medium). I drafted the pattern with my measurement. I have a wide hip. My hip measurement is 42. The medium size pattern can also fit larger sizes if you are going to use a stretch fabric.

I’m so in love with this dress; I like my choice of fabric. The dress accentuates my curves perfectly. I have made something like that, but short length; I needed a longer length so that I can wear it to church or casual hang out with friends. It’s easy to make; It took me approximately three hours to make including drafting the patterns.
Follow my easy step by step tutorial below to make your own simple sexy dress. I will make the pattern available on my next post and link it to this post.
Yay! My first post; I have a few contents to post, but I want to start with this as my first post, Reason…, I didn’t know the proper way to take my measurement when I started making my clothes. So, I did a lot of adjustment on my clothes for them to fit me properly. My diagrams are a little bit unprofessional, but you know what? I’m learning, so learn with me.
