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. 🙂
This was another easy sew. The front and back are cut on fold ….what’s not to love. I had to get use to the cut of the dress as it is narrows from the lower hip to the leg but otherwise – it’s growing on me. I found a pair of strappy sandals to complete the look. I’m ready now – where are we going?
I’ll be back soon with more eye candy. Thanks for Stopping by.
