Presenting a modern twist on the traditional Egyptian galabia or robe, this versatile shirt pattern suits both casual and formal occasions for both genders. Available in shirt or mid-calf lengths, plain or embellished with contrasting details like yokes, applique, or soutache braid, and adorned with handmade cording and knotted buttons.

This loose-fitting style features side panels, slit pockets, and slightly flared sleeves curving under the arms to meet the side panels. The yoke can be styled inside or outside for added contrast. Detailed instructions cover knotted buttons, decorative cording, soutache appliqué, and lengthening the shirt into a galabia.
