And for the one Principle Item that i could definitely have paid, doesn't appear to be on sale,(although i wouldn't pay for it if i can make it myself). This has been one of my biggest problems, I find it very hard to pay for clothes that i can draft, design and sew - so much so that i barely buy my clothes. The downside of this is that i don't get that much time to sew as i would love to. But now i am beginning to make more time, now that my university years are behind me.
I have been checking out what will be the trend this summer without much effort, but yet very comfortable and still sexy. I was looking through the principles Noveau collection and stumbled across the MAXI trend. In Nigeria this has always been the trend for a dress down/ casual. So,i am thinking of making a number of this maxi skirts for the summer, probably unlined or with muslin type weight cotton lining.

As i have been planning my collection, there are styles and designs that i long for. Therefore, i have decided to make myself a set of new wardrobe inspired by Africa. I will be using a combination of African fabrics, linen, cotton and jersey (stretch fabric). My first project will be the Dress123 that was in Burda 05/2007
