Description

A friend of mine requested that I make her a blazer but in African print blended with taffeta for a bolder look. She gave me the material (African print) I looked for a matching taffeta fabric and the result was pleasing to me. For a novice designer I loved it . The pattern is self drafted.

Material Notes

Taffeta and Ankara
