This inspires me! I feel like getting out my machine and make clothes right now..

If anyone have links to sites or videos on how to make different dresses, african style..let me know, please.
I have some african dresses I dont use anymore, and some a friend gave me, where I dont like the shapes, they are two-pieces. Am thinking about changing them into one-pieces, but not sure what kind..

Help?smiley

There r a number of sewing sites online which u cn google, although I'm happy to say that on the blog I created bout 2weeks ago(www.thatssewnaija.blogspot.com) is a DIY/sewing/fashion blog where I'll be posting sewing tips,tutorials,DIYs,sew alongs(where ppl like u n me can sew d same outfits 'together'no mata wr we r physically thRu d help of d internet)ts goin to be fun so u cn join in not to mention d DIY tutorials I'l b posting everyweek.y ds is cool(ds is me being a marketer here lol!)Is d@ most of d sewing sites r 'oyibo based' and sew don't use ankara in their lessons but I'l be doing that ,d evn discussing d different types of ankara,buying experience etc and unlike them I'l make the clothes straight hand and sometimes with patterns to suit evRyone. (Those sites r only pattern-based *wink*) take care dear n c ya soon!

@Onnari, don't blame me joor, i haven't had time o! Puttin' my place together has been taking most of my time. Thanks for the mannequin info, as for ur blog, its been bookmarked since na, i really must commend you. Great work smiley
Re: That's Sew Naija! - Fashion Designers,tailors,accessory/jewelry Makers, Join In! by JallowBah(f): 7:28am On Aug 31, 2012
Onnari: I will make sure to keep an eye on your blogwink

I have learned MUCH from african women, to be honest. Where I am from, its cold 9months of the year, so you have to wear superwool to keep hot. But they come in all colours, so for ME its no stress to have it under dresseswink Women in Norway tend to dress down instead of up, and use "safe" colours, and not much patterns. I love colours, I love patterns. It takes just as long to put on a nice dress, as it takes to put on jeans and a t-shirt!

I do need to start out easy, though..

The people here putting out their websites; do you ship all the way to Norway? And; how much would that cost??
