My Fashion Collection Sewing Plans For 2021

6 March 2021



Suffice it to say, I feel horrible that this is my first blog post of the new year.

Last year put a serious spanner into the wheel of everyone's plans, mine included.

But ironically, I think this is a good segway into my sewing plans for the year. I started sewing mostly in collections last year, and, I have decided to stick with it this year.

It is a very good way of developing a cohesive wardrobe, I can't tell you how much it has helped with the "having nothing to wear" feeling.

Everything matches and flows together, getting dressed is a breeze.

Although, I don't think I can say that about this new collection.


The fashion collection for this year is an Ankara collection, which I'm calling the LOUD CULTURE COLLECTION.

I feel it's quite apt because let's be honest here, ankara is bold, colourful, busy sooooooo, LOUD is the perfect description.
And, ankara is very much part of our culture as Africans even if it isn't our original attire.

Now because I wanted to shop from my stash ( I have tons of ankara given to me as gifts & leftovers from some past projects) and by the very nature of ankara, getting pieces to coordinate colourwise or even design-wise would have been a monumental task, and, the project would never have happened.

So, I decided that the fact that the major pieces of the collection were ankara was enough to call it a collection.

I am very happy that I decided to give this particular collection a go. My ankara wardrobe right now is very pitiful for an African girl.
 I have been dying to change that. And I said as much in my video about my sewing intentions for the new year.

My sewing plans for this collection are kinda dope ( if I do say so myself, LOL). I have pencil skirts, bucket kimono jackets, mic and match prints etc.
But don't take my word for it. Check out the video, and tell me what you think.
Would you change anything?  I need urgent ideas for tops to make.
