So sisters, tonight I was able to take a whole bunch of pics from the abaya shop I most frequently go to for my purchases.
The prices are EXTREMELY affordable and they have ALL sizes and they have a tailor who comes in the morning and will tailor the abaya to the purchasers desired size. Prices are listed!
(please check my Arabian Threads store to order! More details are there, jazakhallakhair)
All of these are $83.oo + $10SH&H
1) crepe with floral design on cuffs and creeping up the sleeves to the shoulders.
2) Crepe, Big sleeves which puff down into a narrow cuff with big, splashy embroidery
3) Sleeves, the first two are above and the third is beautiful arabesque style embroidery around the big puffed sleeves and narrow cuffs. Available in BLACK embroidery and Greyish/Taupe seen below.
Prices vary so will be listed above each abaya.

These are all $50+ $10SH&H
2) Satin, big kimono sleeves with velvet florals on the cuffs.

3) Two abayaat in satin with really interesting sleeves/cuffs.
*Abaya one – plain satin to the elbows but then from elbows to cuffs is THREE layers.Really funky pattern in the under layer of satin with a snug satin under sleeve so when your arms are raised, they are well covered.

Friendly on the wallet but STILL quality! The crepes and satins used are not of the cheap, uber thin variety which rips and runs easily.
1)Crepe with beautiful embroidery.
This one is $40.00 + $10 SH&H
These two below are $34.00 + $10SH&H
2) Satin, plain front with back getting all the details! Pleats and rhinestone accents. Funky lettuce cuffs.
Available in either WHITE rhinestones or BLACK rhinestones.
3) crepe with silver thread and rhinestones.
Satin sleeved overheads.
Sleeved overheads are all the rage here and satin tops all! Its extremely popular to have an overhead with funky cuff designs. A LOT more designs are available…but these are just a few!
All sleeved satin overheaads with pretty cuffs are $45.00 + $10SH&H
Here are some of the cuff designs…
There are also other cuffs available, but I obvously couldnt stand in the shop for ages taking pictures of everything! Saudi’s get VERY upset when someone has a camera in their vicinity and as it was the shopkeeper had to block the shops entrance to keep any ladies from coming in. So everything was very snap and go!
Some off the cuffs shown in the first picture under the average price section are similar to whats also available on some of the sleeved overheads.
Obviously plain satin sleeved overheads are available as are plain crepe sleeved overheads, some of the crepe sleeved overheads and batwing overheads have designs on the cuffs as well. But those arent as popular as the satin sleeved ones so the choices are more limited.
