Modest Wedding Dresses 2

These are from LatterDayBride .

These two are from MyWeddingShop

Bear in mind that the neck and busom should be covered and your figure should not be showing, the dress could be in a larger size to be more loose fitting and a headscarf worn to cover appropriately.

Ao Dai

The ao dai (áo dài) is a Vietnamese national costume primarily for women. In its current form, it is a tight-fitting silk dress worn over pantaloons. Áo dài is pronounced (ow yai) in the South, and (ow zai) in the North. Áo is derived from a Middle Chinese word meaning "padded coat" In modern Vietnamese, áo refers to an item of clothing that covers from the neck down. Dài means "long." (WikiPedia)

I think the Ao Dai could be 'Islamicized', obviously by not wearing a tight fitting one, try a size or two larger than your normal, and ensure that your pants fully cover your sides and legs.

Wedding Dress Vietnam Style

I like these ao dai from Aoi Dai Vinh
Just add a hijab (headscarf) and you are ready to go.

Sew what !!!

I like to sew, and fortunately there are patterns available that are 'hijab' ready or that can be customized. What I like to do is wear a dress as a blouse with pants or even a skirt.

For you Muslimahs out there who can sew check out

Here are a few that I found interesting:

These are a few from Butterick

This one can be customized as a long sleeve blouse

Another long sleeve blouse, lengthen the sleeves a bit.

Make this one a bit looser fit, its too close in the waist as is.
