I must say, I do love this print!! 🙂
Hey peeps, I know I’ve been M.I.A for awhile. I’ll TRY to work on that 🙂
Recently I purchased some african print fabrics. I had never used any of the African wax print fabrics therefore I was eager to do so. This was my first time sewing anything with this fabric and I have to say I really love it.
Constructing clothing and having it hang on my dress form is nice but the excitement comes when I actually try the garment on. The first item you’ll see is a long maxi skirt with in seam pockets. I paired it with a graphic tee from Artistic Tee: http://www.artistictee.com and as for my hair, my locs are curled up on pipe cleaners. Sometimes when I mention “pipe cleaners” people look confused so I inserted a photo below. I wore the pipe cleaners for two days.
I know this post has looooooots of photos but that’s because I’m combining the two of the three fabrics I purchased.
From the next fabric, I made a mini skirt. I actually like a good mini skirt or dress… I know not everyone does. Note to self, don’t wear a mini in windy weather!! I omitted those photos…lol I’m pretty sure you didn’t need to see my underwear 🙂
My my my, I love this print toooooo! Oh and I made those necklaces you see on my dressform. I’ll blog about them later.
You’ll see in the next look, I love mixing prints. I purchased the shirt from Goodwill awhile ago for about $2. Oh yeah, I removed the pipe cleaners 🙂
I have to rush off but if you have any questions or comments you’re welcome to comment here or just find me on Facebook or Instagram (xolb). Byeeeeeeee! 🙂
