ANKARA CRUSH- African Prints Mermaid style dress
I made this dress myself!!!

Hope y'all had a great weekend.
 For a girl whose without a laptop and depends on a borrowed one, I'm doing a decent job as regards to blogging consistency,
 ANKARA CRUSH- African Prints Mermaid style dress

I talked about my recent love for African Prints and have recently worn a couple of Ankara pieces like my Flared Pants and DIY Cold Shoulder Top.
I bought this fabric about a week ago and decided to make a mermaid style dress with it. 
I obviously had help with the cutting of the fabric cos I'm still a learner. But I stitched and glued every piece myself! #proudmoment.
I also made a Zipper Skater Dress for my sister with the same fabric.

I paired my dress with a simple gold choker from Primark and a pair of flat sandals.
 I'm wearing flat sandals from DressLily.

My major curvy trick from the post on How To Look Curvy is taking off inches from my waist area.
I always tailor all my dresses before I wear them.
My waist sits at  25"(before eba consumption) and 26" on a very bloated day. But I take out 3 inches from the waist area of my dress if the fabric is stretchy- examples: the SammyDress Laceup Dress and Zaful Sheath Dress I wore a while ago.
And I take out 1 or 2 inches from stiff fabrics like ankara, like with this dress with the waist at 24" so it cinches in at the waist and makes me look curvier.

  3. One of the things I love about maxi dresses is being able to disguise flat shoes. The Ankara pattern is stunning and you did an amazing job. This dress is too risqué for me but you're in great shape girl. Nice tip on looking curvier, perhaps I'll try it.
