    Thank you fabricitis ;)

    It’s actually my sister in the pic, she needed a mud cloth dress to wear to an upcoming event. I remembered how much I liked AnaJan’s African dress and everyone’s variations, so I decided to try it. I’m so glad it worked out cuz it’s the first piece of real clothing I’ve ever completed, I had like 5 days until the event, and mud cloth fabric isn’t cheap ($60).
