DIY Flared Floral Maxi Dress

So...I've been away for a while haven't I? Don't panic but I've just been busy living life and falling in love. But I am back! And with a vengeance this time, because 98% of the content you will be seeing on this blog will be made by me, myself and I. Yes, DIY fashion! Are you as excited as I am? It was a big move making this decision but I am excited and can't wait to show you some of the stuff I have been creating. 

Let's start with this full flared, off shoulder floral maxi dress. I fell in love with this fabric at a place called vegetable market in Benin, Nigeria and knew I had to have it. Believe it or not, it is actually an African fabric called ankara, though it looks nothing like the traditional ankara. I knew instantly what I wanted to make with it and if I may say so myself, I pulled it off to a tee. The beauty about making your own clothes is the ability to get exactly what you want, how you want it. For example, I love my maxi dresses to sweep the floor but have always have issues with dresses being too long or just not long enough but those are a thing of the past now.

No patterns were used in making this dress, I drafted it free hand since that is something I love doing and I am learning more about. I am not saying that I will never be using patterns but it will be at a minimal and only if I am having problems creating something specific.
