I was in Nigeria few months ago in summer. It was a very nice trip since I haven’t been there for a while. I got this fabric at Oshodi market in Lagos. It was on sale for $8 per 6yrds. I was very skeptical buying it because I wasn’t sure if the green color was going to fade after wash.
When I washed it, it did bleed out some of the green but at the same time it retained it giving it a different green color.
You can tell from the dresses that mine is a little different in color if you look close enough. I washed mine but didn’t wash the girls.
My immediate junior sister promised teaching me free hand sewing. She’s a freehand guru lol. I did learned a little from her though the visit was a very short one and the little I learnt I was able to use for these dresses. Hopefully I will be able to remember the tricks when next I want to try it out again. I’m so used to sewing with patterns.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today
