I went to Ghana with my college a couple of years ago and I managed to pick up this amazing fabric remnant for around 60p (which is around 95 cents)!

I wanted to show off as much of the beautiful pattern as possible and so made a shift dress with a high neckline. I'm so happy with how it turned out!

For a little something extra I lined it with a soft silk and added velour ribbon around the concealed zip Smiley

That is a pretty super awesome and rad dress you got yourself there. You did a great job showing off the print!

Wow, it's stunning!  I love that you did a high neckline, so you have more "canvas" to showcase the pattern.  Thank you for sharing.
