Assalaamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu dear sisters,
Recently I bought a jilbab from Islamic Design House (IDH) and here is the review for it. I wanted to buy something quite casual & sporty to wear with my converses =D yes I am a bit backwards I buy the accessories like hijab, shoes, bag and then buy an outfit to go with it lol. So anyway I was searching around and found this one on the IDH website.
It arrived in reaosnable time (I think, =S it's been a while now) and was packaged well, arrived in perfect condition. First thing I did was try it on, the length was perfect (I'm a weird size 55 inches) the fit was also perfect (they have different size in terms of body fit for each length option, which is SUPER!) only problem and big problem was the sleeves, they were too wide )= but that was fixed with a sewing machine (and I'm not great at sewing, but it wasn't that hard) it did take some trial and error to get the sleeves to fit (I didn't measure it or anything, so if you've got patience then it's really)
[Sorry about the pictures I had to stand on a bed =S]
What I love about it:
-I love the sporty look (I don't have a particular style I stick to, I like to try out all different style's in terms of outfits but this is my first sporty one)
-It looks good with my converses =D
-It fits well and is the right length
-The kimono (chinese/japanese dresses) style touch to it
-And my FaV thing...the sleeves, it's realy unique and gives a super urban chic feel to it.
What I don't like about it:
-I had to adjust the sleeves
-The fabric is like a poly cotton material which causes a lot of friction with my jeans or trousers which I wear underneath it, it's also quite stiff as in it doesn't really flow and makes a ruffling sound when you walk.
-It gets creased really easily so I have to iron it every time I want to wear it.
It's a nice jilbab and I do like wearing it, it's not the most comfortable to walk in but is comfortable to wear. Is it worth the price, I actually don't think it is.....maybe it's the rise is prices of everything these days, but I do feel IDH is quite expensive, not as expensive as Aab uk or Shukr but not far off.
Alhamdulillah that's the review done (I've been meaning to do this for about 2 or 3 months now lol)
Hope you are all in the best of health & imaan...
