Neil's Djellaba


This was made for a Mardi Gras party we recently attended. Originally, I was going for hooded Venetian cloaks with a brocade lining and bird masks. Then, before I knew it, I had 3 days and I calculated I was going to need 12 yards of very expensive fabric to come up with the cloaks so this is what I ended up doing - djellabas!

I just knew I had to do something with a hood since it's been chilly here lately. It took $18 worth of fabric and three hours to make. After the party, I read up some more on djellabas and learned that it is Moroccan and is usually worn with a red hat called a fez and slippers called baboosh (hello Bryan Boy!).
