Inspired by Desira sera by Amarie, I checked out our local African grocery store to see if they also sold fabric. There were so many amazing fabrics on offer! Instead of making the sash, I used the sash to make a belt, which worked better for me. I also omitted the sleeves.

Material Notes






Amarie for the idea

Mike for his wonderful assistance.
