Making a silk charmeuse hijab with crystals!

28 Oct

Salaam ladies,

Before I headed out for my sister in laws wedding, I had to make my hijab for my wedding outfit. I bought a charcoal grey gown so the material I chose for the hijab was silk charmeuse. It was the perfect color and perfect choice the the location and outfit! So I was really excited to get this done, of course with Vancouver, my sons first birthday and 1 week left till take off to Puerto Vallarta, I kinda waited till last minute to do my hijab and was left with a challenge, I had a crying and hyper toddler and crystal beads that wouldn’t stay put! But in the end all worked out well!




The crystal beads I used were called Crystazzi and they were heat set crystals.

I bought the fabric in Manhattan, it was really pricey, but I needed it and so I bought it and it was worth it! I bought 1 yard and cut it in half lengthwise and sewed it together using a french seam widthwise. I serged/overlocked the edges.

Next step is adding on the crystals. For this I used an iron and my eyes and and eyes balled it.

This is what it looked like once done!
