The best sewing pattern of the al-Amira hijab
More detailed sewing tutorial you can find here: click me. Here I represent the most optimal pattern (from my point of view ) for Al-Amira hijab.
You will need jersey fabric – about 70-100 cm (having width = 1.5 cm). It is better to take viscose jesey having elastan in composition.
The pattern looks as shown on the picture below:
a – the half of the following measurement, multiplied by extensibility factor
I use the following parameters for different head sizes:
S – a= 24 cm
M –a= 25 cm
L –a= 26 cm
b – the length of the back side – about 70 cm
d – the length of the front part – about 45 cm
The lengths of the back and front sides you can choose on your own. The important point here that the difference between these values has to be not less than 25 cm. The back side has to be longer.
This form of the hemline – waved – will open a bit your arms and this is very comfortable solution for an active lifestyle.
Hemline it is better to sew with a serger rolled hem.But if you do not have a serger, you can sew a lace to it, it is also easy way to finish a hemline.
Then sew with serger “face edge” a, sew the hood sides (along the line d), and then fold “face edge” 1-2 cm and hem this line.

And the hood part of the al-amira hijab is ready.
Using the rest of fabric let’s sew underscarf-tube. The detailed sewing tutorial for it here: click me.
