This was the first thing I made for myself immediately I learnt how to make a skirt. It was quite a challenge I must admit and I spent the whole night making it so I could wear it the next day. I wore it the next day with pride. lol! Happy Easter folks!!!

The funniest thing happened in one of my classes at school, my teacher said 'the fabric is most definitely hounds tooth' I just smiled, then i went close to her then she saw it was not. My jacket is most definitely made of ankara fabric. Here are some pictures to show you my beloved jacket. I just had to use the fabric to make a jacket, and I was not disappointed by the reactions I got. Let me know what you think.....

Hey peeps!
I know I have been away for a short while and I apologize. I have been trying to settle into my new apartment, meet my roommates, go for orientation, registration and my first day of school. Well! Here's a little something from LA. Its so beautiful out here.
 I just love this fabric (chiffon), its not the easiest for me to work with, but it is so versatile, it moves wherever you want it to, it flows, it drapes. I am discovering the many ways the fabric can be used.
