The seamstress called me to let me know that the alterations have been completed on my abayas and now it is time for the fitting. I returned to the alteration shop this afternoon. The two women, whom I previously gave a synopsis on the Muslim culture, my reason for being in Saudi and wearing of the abaya eagerly awaited my arrival to see is their alterations were successful. I tried on both abayas and the length as well as the width of the one sent in size 3X were excellent.
I couldn’t wait to get home to try on the abayas with the hijab. My,……I actually think I look thinner in it! Yes, the two seamstresses from Jamaica did an amazing job! I am just about ready for my trip.
All the best,
