How to make khimar longer…
Once one sister asked me to make her khimars longer. And here I explain what I did to help her ).
If you have old hijab having damaged hemline or you also want to make one longer, here you can find the way.
I forgot again to make photos for each step but I show some schemas, see below.
Let’s assume we have one khimar. Put it in half like shown on the picture.
Now cut hemline straightly – make triangle line for the front and back sides. If your khimar initially had triangle form, then just cut some width.
And know khimar is ready for nice upgrade.
You need a piece of fabric. I want to warn you, you will need the big piece, probably more than 1 meter.
You need to cut four parts:
А – a component for the back part – 2 pieces
В – a component for the front part – 2 pieces
b – the width needed to extend khimar length in front
c – the width needed to extend khimar length on the sides
a – the width needed to extend khimar length on the back. Remember that the khimar’s back has to be a least 20 cm longer than the front side.
So as you see these components are not just flat strips, and this will cause high expenditure of the fabric.
To save fabric these strips can be cut into several pieces.
Cut the fabric. You can you chiffon and it bring more tenderness to the khimar style. You you can combine colors. You to make folds. Or laces…. Or something else.
Sew first lines l, and only then sew lines a, b, c:
This can be your result!
Or like this one. By the way to make folds you need to make strips longer that khimar’s measurements.https://helikastyle-empire.com/en/to-make-khimar-longer-en/How to make khimar longer...https://helikastyle-empire.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/make-khimar-longer-08.jpghttps://helikastyle-empire.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/make-khimar-longer-08-195x260.jpgHelikaStyle and Hijabs.
