My statement dress!!!

Till this day this dress is the best dress I have ever sewn! Inspired by Kathy Anthony! A popular fashion designer and dressmaker in Nigeria. I made this dress in June. At that time of my life I had this sewing excitement and spree! Destroying materials and also making the best of them.
I made a simple blouse for myself  before and oh my! It shocked the novice in me. Therefore it triggered me to make this attire for myself. 
I had been scrolling through and searching for pictures as I normally do when I need to get inspired! I had been desperate to get a design for a wedding I wanted to attend. And then came the picture from KathyAnthony's Instagram page. I knew I had found what I needed.
I sketched out my own version that I needed. I don't know about anybody but I love it all.
I wish I could tie a proper gele I would have but it is ok
This was when I was seriously  getting down with the blouse. I made the dress in a day or lemme say in two days since I had to do add the finishing touches. I must have been laughing at something my cousin said because I wasn't even aware I got snapped. Since I don't get to have any pictures of me sewing I am glad I have this one.

This is the dress, a geometric peplum blouse and a knee length skirt
This is the front view. I really don't know why I decided to color block with red but I guess it isn't bad. This Ankara is life!!!
I love the effect of the gold zip!

From sketch to reality
I love this dress!!!
Now meet the inspiration!!!

She is so gorgeous! And so is her outfit

Now this was the real inspiration @kathyanthony. This is soooooo nice! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️πŸ‘ŒπŸΎπŸ‘ŒπŸΎπŸ‘ŒπŸΎπŸ‘ŒπŸΎ
