Who doesn't love the beauty of african prints?..well talking about ankara in particular. Ankara has come to stay, for a while I wasn't into giving out my clothes to tailors, because I always have one complain or the other and end up not wearing it, but recently I just couldn't help but want more and more of this beautiful fabric. The problem though was I had no money to buy or even pay the tailors..like I was so broke, but I still wanted me some ankara...so I set out on a mission...lol..
My mum, being an Igbo woman has all these kinds of ankaras that she uses for different occasions like star,mporoka( I think that's the spelling) , hollandis....and really retro ankaras are the trend right now. You just gotta see what people are doing with ankara. Very creative...from head pieces, necklaces, bags, shoes.... So I asked her for some of her wrappers and some I just.....(Well u know)...most of the pieces I got weren't even up to 2 yards, but I knew I just had to be creative with it or no new clothes for me
I took the pieces to the tailors and got other fabrics just to make simple dresses that I could wear anywhere. And came up with this.
Note: I took this pictures a while ago, never knew I was gonna start a blog, please manage them....lol
