This is a shortened version of the traditional Egyptian galabia or robe. Loose-fitting style with side panels and slit pockets. The yoke can be turned to the inside, or to the outside for interesting contrast. Instructions are included for knotted buttons, decorative cording, soutache appliqué, and lengthening the shirt to make the galabia.
Suggested fabrics: Crisp or soft fabrics such as cottons, muslin, lightweight denim, broadcloth. For applique pieces, use 100% cotton.
