Undrerscarf-tube is the first underscarf among all possible types and the simplest in sewing.
The main purpose of the underscarf-tube is the base for islamic headdress, to fix the scarf on it and to not let this scarf to slide.
Sewing of it is only two steps: once to fold and once to stitch. But anyway I share this instructions as introduction for all others types of underscarves.

Before the star I’d like to tell you my opinion. I do not recommend any kind of boneys or turbans, when back side of this headdress is closed. Because they gather our long hear on top of the head and this is prohibited for muslimah.  More over they are  absolutely not comfortable in putting on as afterwards you need to hide back your hairs.
I recommend to make such head dress with bands. It is more comfortable to putt them on. Bands give possibility to regulate the level of jersey stretching so this inner cap will be worn longer. That is why all HelikaStyle underscarves have bands.

I’d like to say again that to sew underscarves it is better to use jersey having 6-8% elastan. It can be viscose jersey or cotton jersey. Do not use polyester for such garments!

We should not forget about jersey extensibility. This factor can be different for each type of fabric so you will need to correct your pattern according to fabric are you going to use.

So let’s begin.
You need to measure your head size.

Cutting is very simple:

You need to cut rectangle, where
a – the length of your underscarf. Usually it is about 30 cm.
b – is your head measurement multiplied by extensibility factor. According to my experience  extensibility factor can heave values in the interval   0,75 – 0,85.

To define more precisely extencibility factor for you favorite jersey, try to sew this underscarf model. Then just use defined value for other more complex models.

How to calculate extencibility factor:
1)  remember your head measurement –  bn
2) cut rectangle with side b = bn-2cm (for the fist try)
3) do temporary stitching along the line a
4) try it on, and if it is big for you cut length b for 2 cm more, try on again
5) when it fits, remember this optimal value b and calculate extencibility factor = b/bn

For example,  my jersey fabric I used to sew this underscarf had extencibility factor = 42/54=0.78. Means, If I sew another type of underscarf using this fabric, I will take this value and will not calculate it again.

Cut the rectangle  and overlock its sides.

From one side fold up 1 -10 cm,  as you like, and hem this line. Fold in a half right sides together and stitch sides.

It is also possible to gather a bit underscarf on the back.

If you want to have bands for your underscarf then you do not need to stitch sides.  You need to make bands and better to do this using not elastic fabric. Then we need to gather both sides and stitch to them our bands. Do this like shown on the pictures.
