Asalau'alaikum everyone, come abaya shopping with me in this vlog. I needed some hijabi staples so I thought I would take you guys along with me. As a hijabi living in London, it is very easy to get modest wear since London does have a high Muslim population so I can just go to certain area's like East London, or Tooting to get my staples. I hope you all enjoy the vlog and let me know if you would like to see more Islamic related vlogs from me. #abaya #abayashopping OTHER VIDEOS YOU MAY WANT TO WATCH Who is Allah 6 Guys Muslim Girls Should Not Marry Meeting Mufti Menk Places I mentioned: ROYAL LONDON HOSPITAL WHITECHAPLE MARKET Nasheed by Rhamzan Days (This is a vocals only & no musical instruments.

How to take garment measurements of tops, dresses, abayas and jackets:

Lay out a similar garment you own flat on the floor or on a table. Using a soft measuring tape, take the following measurements:

Length: Measure the centre back of the garment, from the bottom of the neckline until the end of the hem at the bottom of the garment.

Sleeve: Measure the length of the sleeve from the point of its attachment at the top of the shoulder, to the end of the cuff hem.

Bust: Measure immediately underneath the armhole, across the chest of the garment.

Shoulder: Measure from the point of sleeve attachment at the top of the shoulder on one side, to the same point on the other side.

Waist: Measure 6.5 inches (17cm) down from underneath the armhole. This gives you the waist level. Now measure across the width of the garment.

Hip: Measure 14.5 inches (37cm) down from underneath the armhole. This gives you the hip level. Now measure across the width of the garment.
