DIY Floral Faux Wrap Dress

Fun fact about me…nine out of ten times when I am getting dressed, I will reach for a dress. That’s just who I am, a girl who loves dresses. But, like I’ve been telling myself for the past five years or so, I will try to get excited about pants very soon…yeah right.
This dress was inspired by a pinterest board that caught my eye and immediately I saw this gorgeous ankara fabric, i knew exactly what to do with it. The bold floral pattern did all the work here, a faux wrap, a circle skirt and a cold shoulder later, viola. 
As always, this pattern was drafted directly on fabric cos honestly, paper patterns scare and frustrate me. I envy anyone who can draft a pattern then transfer it to their fabric because it looks cool but if I try that, that project aint getting finished in about three months. So, fabric drafting it is for me!

Thanks for stopping by and till my next DIY!

DIY Racer Tank, Flared Dress

One beautiful thing I love about sewing, is the fact that I can quickly put together a pretty good looking outfit in a few hours. An example is this dress that I made in about 2.5hours and honestly, I feel great about it. As much as I love the challenge of creating something different and new, I also love creating something simple and easy as it is usually pretty quick instant gratification. 
I wanted to try out a racer neck tank dress, but ended up with a halter-ish neckline, which I did not mind at all since it turned out quiet nice. I added a circle flounce to the hem for a little more detail.
