Welcome back to the blog!
It’s a DIY show and tell today, woohoo…
Making my own clothes is fast becoming a favourite of mine. My style is constantly changing and I love the fact that I can make a garment to suit my mood. We are in the heart of summer in the U.K. Even though we don’t get a constant stream of sunlight daily, I enjoy wearing loads of prints & colours this season. Last week, I made a pair of print palazzo pants with Ankara fabric.
“Ankara commonly known as “African prints”,”African wax prints” “Holland wax” and “Dutch wax”, is a 100% cotton fabric with vibrant patterns. It is usually a colorful cloth and is primarily associated with Africa because of its tribal-like patterns and motifs” All Things Ankara
I purchased the fabric online from Middlesex textiles for a bargain!
I knew I wanted to make fun pants with loose legs, this way my legs have room to breathe on very warm summer days. To go with these pants, I made a simple white bardot blouse with sheer textured mix of fabrics. The simplicity of the blouse worked well with the eccentricity of the palazzo pants.
Enjoy the photos.
The sewing tutorial will be on my YouTube channel tomorrow at 5:00pm GMT. Subscribe here to get notified ^.-
