December Vibe Chitenge Flare

Day two of my challenge, I took classic styles and did them in African print. My first attempt at doing  African print cloths, commonly known as Chitenge or Chitenje here in Zambia. The first is a dungaree dress and the second is a mermaid dress.

Outfit One – I actually wanted to have this one made (still planning on it), my little sis is a tailor so I did this sketch for her to know exactly what it is that I wanted. I like how it came out in general, it is a pretty chitenge dungaree dress with a plane white T-shirt.

Outfit two-This was mainly practice for a back view drawing, it didn’t come out exactly how I wanted it. I like the yellow accents popping through the richness of the blue plus that big bow right at the natural waistline (I wanted the bow smaller).
