HOUSE OF DOUBLE "O": Summer '09 Collection

So I love to sketch clothes.............with Ankara at the back of my mind.

By Ankara, I mean most African prints- woodin, damask et all...........don't know the difference. I just think they can be used to make very very pretty clothes.

Half the time I sketch based on the Ankara(s) I have accuqired, thanks to my mates getting married (99% of the time I never get my material to the tailor on time, and even when I do- I never end up attending the weddings- Not a deliberate act.)

And so in the month of may, i had the luxury of playing around with a pen and pad........end result?!


Not fired up by this one anymore- but I guess colour and print design on the fabric could change all that.


Simple but Sassy


Sexy


Sophisticated & SimpleĀ 

Sophisticated (I can rock this thanks to the only strapless bra I know that actually holds big girls!- Thanks La Senza- u rock!- PS: This is not an AD :-))

Simple & Sexy

Sizzling Hot.......


These Were actually done for a workmate who had jugs to go for miles.........


I have this already made........really cute.

Ankara Diva......



My friend had this made.......All I can say about the real deal is......Hot!

.........Scrolling down, I noticed how my sketches emphasize boobs, and straight cuts.........LOL!

I am definitely doing this subconciously by using my body shape.

I hope to display the finished items someday...............(if I don't lose interest with the way tailors behave)

I used to love sketching my outfits and taking them to my mommy's tailor to be made. Ah, the good old days.

Anyway she, *ahem* me sef I don fap one style oh. Off to Mama Tope to start bargaining price. Getting stuff sewn over here can be super expensive.
