Hi dearies,
hope your day is going well. I decided to design and sew a simple native ankara lace trim box dress with a cap. This is more or less a sequel to the ‘Exaggerated Shokoto‘ post in case you missed it. The African ankara fabric also featured in the ‘20 seconds Gele Review‘ post. It was fun making my cap though I might make a bigger version next time. One thing is for sure, I have acquired a new found love for lace trims as depicted in my cold shoulder boubou DIY dress. Find pictures below of my comfy dress and my afro hair styled in cornrows 🙂
