Instructions for Making a Basic Khimar
 

 


 

 

 

 


 

 

 


 

Use white cotton fabric to make a comfortable prayer outfit. Follow the instructions above for making the khimar. Purchase 4m (4yd) of eyelet (or other cotton) lace. Stitch the lace along the entire bottom of the khimar, before sewing up the front. When you sew the front [from Points A-C] make the face opening small so that the khimar will cover your hair in the front and you won't need to wear an underscarf.
