Pakistani Chador

Here's one for my SCAdian and Muslim friends, perfect for the newbie or modest Muslimah who wants to cover up their modern clothing in a pinch or for salat.

I'm 5' 2" tall and the measurements in the chart are for myself. You'll be able to determine your measurements using the chart for "How to Measure". You will also be able to determine your yardage based on these measurements.  I strongly recommend that the first time you make this, you use inexpensive material or old bed sheets to work out the kinks in the measurements. Once you get it "just right", move on to the "real" stuff. Use something lightweight. This garment is quite comfortable when made out of a light-weight, slippery, stretchy fabric.
