African Print Dress

I’m still outside the box and I’m not sure I’ll ever go back.  I decided to channel my girl ThatBlackChick who is a talented designer with the most amazing skills that I’ve  ever seen…she’s nice to boot and takes the time to always leave encouraging messages. 🙂  Thanks Michelle.   I’m not anywhere close to her awesomeness but I tried to play around with an Ankara print that I had purchased a while ago.   The problem with being a fabric hoarder is that you don’t remember where you got your fix from.  But you can find African Print fabric here.

I used Vogue for the dress because I wanted something simple that would showcase the fabric design.   What you see here is no accident.  I cut the fabric so that the shoulders, sleeves and hem highlight the fabric trim and the body of the dress showcases the large circle designs.  Not too shabby if I say so myself. 🙂

I’ll be back soon with more eye candy.   Thanks for Stopping by.

Gotta Go…Gotta Sew
