CHAIN PRINT

Hello darlings!
Guess y'all had a great weekend!
I've been lamenting; for a while now cos it seemed like I was the only one who hadn't rocked the 'oleku' trend.


 I saw this beautiful chain print fabric in the market and knew I just had to buy it even though I had no idea what I was gonna make with it.
I decided to make an iro n buba which is a traditional outfit originating from the Yorubas of Nigeria. Its simply a loose blouse with a wrapper. Its been modernised and remixed these days that its become a very stylish ensemble not the like our mothers and grand mothers used to rock it.
I knotted my wrapper in 2 different ways (I guess you can tell the difference). Its really simple and just about anyone can tie it. But if you would want a tutorial (or pictorial), please drop a comment and I would do that.




 I paid about N200 for a yard and got 3 yards of this fabric. The total of what it cost me to make this outfit is just a fraction of what its sold for in some Nigerian online stores. I plan to make more of this as I got more fabrics (you didn't think I got just one, did you?). I might not share it on the blog but you can keep an eye on my Instagram (JustPorsh) for more.
