I bought an African print fabric and wanted to make a shift dress to wear to a West African wedding. As Im from Southern Africa I decided to accessories with a South African traditional hat and I loved my style. I made the dress in 2 days quite a shock something I have never done before. It was most probably inspired by the Great British Sewing bee.
