What do You Think of My Princess Jasmine Pants?





I love some loose wide-legged pants! Don't you? So, I designed these loose pants to have an adjustable waist - they expand very wide over the hips and then button close around your waist to your present size. You can also wear these high or low waisted, depending on the look you want. The ankles have a matching closure and buttons; so that you can wear them hanging loose like the picture or tight like tradional harem pants. I made these pants out of the same the fabric as my safiyah, fringe and zakkiyah tunics. These are just samples at this point. Before I produce them in sizes, I want to know what you think. Please let me know, do you like this style too? If I produce these, they will cost $35.00. Do you think that is a fair price?

I LOVE them! They would be so comfortable under an abaya! They are like a well-tailored version of Indian shalwar. :-)
I think $35.00 is ok, but when you include shipping it might be a bit pricey. I personally would be more willing to pay $30.00.

Assalamualaikum Najea.
Nice pants and I love it! You are so good at sewing and dressmaking. I wish I could sew like you. About the price, if $35 is equal to MYR35 (my local currency) than I would say it's reasonable. However it's actually more than MYR100 so it's a bit expensive for me. But internationally it's ok.

Lovely! and I agree with Amirah re: price.

I love a lot of your outfits and will be back to spend money on them as soon as I have some in my pockets :)

I am thanking Allah right now you just don't even know.I am an African American revert to Islam alhamdulillah who for the past 6 months has been living in Morocco with my Moroccan husband.When I came I came with the intention to be more consistent in my hijab.Being a plus size lady it is very difficult to find ready to wear jilabas here that dont make you look like a house.I want to look young and stylish.My DH has no clue where to shop and since I don't speak French or Arabic I cant just wonder off on my own.Then in google I find this site alhamdulillah.Sister if you can ship to Casablanca I will be your number 1 customer!!!!

Assalaamu alaikum sis,

I really like these pants. These look perfect to wear underneath my abayas. I wear more of the traditional saudi style abayas in black much to my husband's annoyance, lol . He is Moroccan and inshallah after the birth of our baby this summer we will travel there for a month. I need some nice cool/comfortable outfits to wear inside the house...I'll still be rocking my all black outside, lol. Like Aisha I'm also a black American revert (but of 8 years mashallah) and definitely plus sized. It's hard to find things that suit me. $35 is reasonable to me as I've definitely paid more than that for a simple pair of jeans, lol.

As-Salaamu-Alaikum Sisters,

I did mass produce the shirt; but, not the pants - yet! After all of your input - it's in the next line.

Thanks Sisters,

Najea
