Hi sew lover
Welcome to this week’s free tutorial- How to sew agbada for men and women. This tutorial was actually one of the topics taught in TheQEffectz Advanced class.
What is Agbada?
Agbada is a four-piece male attire found among the Yoruba of southwestern Nigeria and the Republic of Benin, West Africa. It consists of a large, free-flowing outer robe (awosoke), an undervest (awotele), a pair of long trousers (sokoto), and a hat (fìla). The outer robe-from which the entire outfit derives the name agbada, meaning “voluminous attire”-is a big, loose-fitting, ankle-length garment. It has three sections: a rectangular centerpiece, flanked by wide sleeves. The centerpiece-usually covered front and back with elaborate embroidery-has a neck hole (orun) and big pocket (apo) on the left side. To learn more about Agbada, please click here
The outer robe is what I am going to be teaching you today. While the tutorial contains both free-hand cutting( you can see here to learn how to make the pattern) and also how to sew the outer robe, see here to learn more about the inner garments- Buba and Sokoto. And also, join TheQEffectz Advanced Class next session to learn how to sew them from scratch to finish.
