Equipment you will need to shorten that abaya or dress is:
- tape measure
- needle for hand sewing *take this option if you don’t have a sewing machine.
- sewing machine
*Please note when it comes to abayas I measure in inches, why? because abaya sizes are in inches, and it is more simple. If you prefer to do your measurements in cm please do.
2. Lay it down. Now that you have your measurement sorted, lay the garment down on a flat space, whether it is on your dinning room table, or on your carpet.
3. Measure again. Lay the tape measure down on your garment and with your chalk mark the new length you want your garment to be.
