I have always loved how Chinese dresses have looked. They are so beautiful and elegant. I have no idea how to hijabify them because the dresses are very form fitting. Now, unless you want to buy dresses three sizes bigger than you, and wear a long cardigan over the top; it's up to you. However, who says you can't rock them inside the home? So, I created a set for the hijabi's and niqabi's to wear inside the home:

Simply sauve...
Look at how pretty the green is! I am so in love with this dress, it isn't even funny. Well, if I can find it in a store one of these days, I will wear it around the house. Remember ladies, perfume only inside of the home! As for a hairstyle, how about this beautiful chinese hairbun?

That is so pretty! On Youtube I found a demonstration on how to do it. Just don't try to wear this under your hijab. The sticks may ruin your hijab, or you may accidentally poke yourself. :)

May Allah bless and guide us all! - Nisa

that tutorial on the hairbun was cool! She made it look so easy. Might have to try that. I'm so tired of always wearing my hair up in a sloppy bun or ponytail.

Salaam Nisa,
Chinese clothing is truly so elegant, but only the chinese can really pull it off wearing those gorgeous dresses. I love your combo, the green color is a pretty soothing color.

That's really cute! And I love green.
Oh another problem is a qi pao tends to have really long slits up both sides. I think an ao dai (Vietnamese type of dress) might be easier to hijab-ify it has long sleeves and pants.

Asalamwa alaykum everyone,

Stephanie - Salaam! Yeah, I just tried it last night and this morning. It's really beautiful, and it's REALLY easy!! All you need is some sort of stick...and wa-la..a bun that looks fab.Thanks for your comment!

Bengali Muslima - Saalam! Yeah, I agree. I have only seen Chinese women looking really beautiful in them. Maybe that's why it's so hard for me to get one. Lol. Thank you for your comment!

Malandi - Salaam! I forgot about it having slits up the sides. Don't they usually wear pants with it too? I can't remember. I'll have to look into an Ao dai, insha allah. :D Thanks for your comment!

Ya know, I don't usually see people wearing pants with a qi pao--not that they can't it's just something I rarely, or if ever see.
