Hi Everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Luckily, the sun remade an appearance on Saturday, after a week of “tropical” rain, so I jumped at the chance to wear my newly made little printed dress…
This time, I decided to use a fabric that had been waiting patiently on my shelf for a couple of years. I tend to collect a lot of fabrics and materials during my travels and usually let them sit until I find the perfect design for them.
This dress was made in an original African print fabric, which I found in a market in Abidjan (Ivory Cost)… in 2008! So you see, a lot of time has passed by, but looking at it now, I am very happy to have waited that long.
I wanted to create something simple, yet with a little twist as the fabric was already very colorful. Also, I thought it had to be wearable in a different number of occasions, for a day in the city, an afternoon at the beach, an evening event, and as well with heels or flats as I tend to wear a lot of flat sandals in the summer… So, please tell me, what do you think of the final result, what would you wear it for?
When in the end, I realized I had some extra fabric left, I made, not one, but two headbands out of it… One for me, and, one for you! Yes, you! So Later this week I will be putting up a giveaway in which one of you will be able to win my other little handmade head band…! Woop Woop! xx
