SEWING THE PANTS-SKIRT

بِسْــــــــــــــــــمِ اﷲِالرَّحْمَنِ اارَّحِيم

MONEY GREEN SWEET PEA

As-Salaamu ‘Alaikum Sweet Asiatic Black Queens!

This is the style of dress that was given to the Blackwoman in America – the Queen of the Planet Earth – by Allah (God) through His Divine Messenger, The Most Honorable and Humble Elijah Muhammad (May the Peace and the Blessings of Allah forever be upon him).

We should all strive to dress in this manner. This is decent and intelligent. Our husbands are going to be the Rulers in the Next Life, Sisters. As their wives, we must always display the highest form of dress. The so-called Negroes are returning to our rightful place On Top of Civilization. We are the epitome of righteousness, to whom all nations of the Earth look up to.

Therefore, we must wear the Holy Garments that were Divinely Given To Us By OUR Leader, Allah, in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom Praises are Due Forever.

As you can probably guess, you will not be able to go to the mall and find this garment. Actually, Sisters, Allah (God) Requires that we make all of our own clothes, our family’s clothes, house furnishings (pillows, curtains, tablecloths, etc.) ourselves. We must stop depending on our slavemaster and his children to provide us with these things, when we are perfectly capable of doing for self.

Number One – PURCHASE A SEWING MACHINE.

You can figure out how to make anything, Sisters. If you need help, utilize your resources. All sewing machines come with manuals. In addition to telling you how to use it, it will tell you what type of stitch to use on the different fabrics, how to sew a buttonhole, how to change the bulb and pretty much everything else. Anything not covered in the manual you can find on YouTube.

Practice makes perfect, Sisters. The more you sew, the more you will learn. Don’t be afraid of making mistakes. Mistakes are how we learn. Just get started. There are sewing kits that come with everything you need you can probably find one at Big Lots for under $20. They should come with scissors, a seam ripper, tape measure, needles, stick pins, probably a thimble, a hem measuring device and any assortment of implements.

The pants-skirt is very easy to make. If you look closely at the pictures, you will notice on the left side of the “skirt” it does not wrap all the way around. This is because it is actually a pair of very wide pants that is doubled over to give the appearance of a skirt.

We wear these because of the place where we live – America. The Black nation lives under the “shadow of death” here in the Wilderness of North America, therefore we must be prepared to defend ourselves, if attacked, at all times.

The pants-skirt gives our legs the freedom of movement that will allow us to kick an attacker effectively.

It is made with a yoke and either elastic around the waist or a zipper fastener. I use elastic because it is easier.

Here is the pattern:

pantskirt

It is cut off a little. The top line should read HIP Measurement + 1/2 in. (seam allowance). The yoke should be 10″ top to bottom. I would also add 2″ to the length instead of the 1/2″ seam allowance. I have found that it usually comes out too short.

To Sew:

Sew together the edges of each of the larger pieces. Turn the pieces right side out and attach the two pieces together where you “cut on the curve.” You will end up with one big pair of pants. In sha Allah (If it pleases Allah) I will post pictures (maybe even a video) the next time I make one.

Next, comes the tricky part. Lay your big pair of pants down and take the edge of the right side and fold it over to the middle of the front of the left side. Then take the edge of the left side and fold over to the middle of the back of the right side. It should look like a skirt now.

Next lay your yoke over the top of your skirt so that it can wrap around and meet in the back  The bottom of the yoke should be even with the top of the skirt so that after you pin it and sew it together, when you hold the skirt up, it should look something like this:

The InfoVisual.info site uses images to explain objects.

It won’t have the panels nor the fitted waist, but the yoke will be attached as shown.

Next fold over enough space around the top of the pants-skirt to insert elastic around the waist. Leave an opening and insert the elastic using two safety pins.

Lastly, hem the bottom of your pants-skirt and you’re done!

As far as the dress goes, I just found a long sleeved shirt with a long waist, laid it over some material, pinned it, cut around it, and sewed it back together. I’ve never used a pattern like you find in fabric stores. We can do anything we put our minds too, Sisters. We are GODDESSES. Tap into your creativity and you can make whatever you want.

Just make sure it is long enough to cover your behind, the sleeves are at least two inches past your elbow and the collar covers your neck and each piece is the same color.

Ideally, it should also have a Mandarin Collar.

These are our guidelines, Sisters. Just stick within these, and don’t be gaudy.

The headpiece is fairly simple to make as well. This is the basic design. It is two pieces. The top picture shows the outside. The bottom shows the inside and the attachment that is used to tie. If you look closely, you will see a line near the top. That shows the separation between the two pieces. You can draw patterns freehand. Just make sure the curved edges are congruent, so that when you sew them together, they will match up.

  1. Sister, I didn’t notice it the last time but see it now that you sell these garments. Although I am not of your faith is it possible that you’d sell to me. I am interested in purchasing the a head piece, skirt and dress for myself to start wearing. Your clothes are absolutely beautiful! If so how do I contact you to order? Thanks so much.

    1. BISMILLAHI RAHMANI RAHIM

      AS-SALAAM-ALAIKUM!

      Yes Ma’am, when you mentioned that you are not of my faith, it makes me skeptical. Therefore, I must ask, and please reply truthfully, ARE YOU BLACK?

    1. As-Salaam-Alaikum Dearly Beloved Sister Betty,

      I pray Allah you are well and experiencing abundant Blessings from our Saviour Allah, Master Fard Muhammad, To Whom Praises Are Due Forever. I am happy to write that I am the same. I thank Allah!

      Dear Beloved Sister, later on after I asked, I remembered you posting one of your experiences as a Black woman travelling from New York to Atlanta(?). I apologize for the lapse in my memory.

      Dear Sister, you know, I and Allah (God) Want you to know how to sew. The point of this blog is to get you back into your nature as the Blackwoman. The Helpmate of the Blackman.

      Allah (God) Blessed us with the responsibility of making clothes for our family and the other things around our homes (curtains, tablecloths, bedspreads, pillow cases, pot holders, &c.)

      I understand these skills take time, Sister. But if you will give me your word that you will make an effort to learn to sew by purchasing a sewing machine, I will be happy to design and create a garment Allah (God) designed for His Woman. I love you and I want for my Sister what I want for myself.

      I look forward to hearing from you soon, Dear Sister. May Allah (God), Master Fard Muhammad, To Whom Praises Are Due Forever, Bless you with Peace of Mind and Contentment.

      In the Name of Allah,
      As-Salaamu-Alaikum,
      Your Sister,

      ~ Sister Latifah Allah ~

      1. Ok thanks no problem, I liked the one you modeled on your blog in peach or a light pink with the extra wide sleeves. You were waving your arms around, lol. I would like that set in the same color, its such a pretty set. So when I get your phone number I will call & get your mailing address to pay by money order with info on my size and/or measurements. Yes when I lived in New York I had brought a couple of Sari’s to bring with me when I moved to the South and the seamstress made them so beautiful and they fit perfectly and they are still beautiful. So right now I am working on loosing a bit of weight too. So I will need to buy a sewing machine and learn to sew so I can take all my clothes in a bit as I loose. I hate to toss all of the clothes I like. So thanks so much. But for now I mostly buy my modest looking clothing. I like maxi dresses and I don’t wear pants at all. You are so blessed to have such amazing home making skills to make curtains, tablecloths, pillow cases and pot holders. Your talented and such a smart lady. I took from you the idea of putting Ivory soap in my laundry, letting my clothes soak with the soap before hand. It really makes our clothes smell so fresh. because I do not use strong detergents due to being so concerned about chemicals and what not. So have a nice day.

      2. As-Salaam-Alaikum Dear Sister,

        Send me an e-mail. 😀 I’ll just need your measurements. I can try to find a fabric in a similar color for you, Dear Sister. But the choices fluctuate. I am sure, with the Help of Allah, We (Allah points out which fabric for me to purchase) Will Find Something To Please You. I can go into more detail about which measurements I’ll need after I receive your e-mail. Sorry, Sister, I don’t own a phone. 😉

        Also, once you learn to use your sewing machine, you will be able to take in your garments after losing the weight!
