I made my own plus size adaptation of Oleku, an in-fashion Nigerian fashion style.
My wrapper is knee lenght rather than mini, though it looks much shorter in the pic as Im tall and wearing heels!
I had to add a wee bit of frills to the sleeve as I love my frills. The outfit is really quick and easy to make. I cut, made the outfit one Sunday mornibg before 9am and wore it to church.
You can make a similar outfit if you are attending a Nigerian function this summer.
