Cross-Back Ankara Tank Top

What I Wore: Memorial Day

On Memorial Day, I woke thinking about what I wanted to wear to the "All Things Nigerian" event in Silver Spring, MD. I wanted to wear something comfortable and simple. Something I can throw on top of my jeans/skirt with some flats and keep it moving. I decided to make the cross-back tank top below using Ankara Fabric. It was quick and easy to make and only took me about 1.5 to 2 hours to make from cutting the finishing.

The "All Things Nigerian" event was okay. They had lots of vendors, a DJ, performers, and of course my favorite part, a fashion show. The fashion show pieces were nicely done and unique. 

Can I ever take pictures and not dance? Not All..

For the Sewists, the pattern used is M6751. If you don't sew, I'm making a few until the fabric is no longer in stock. Visit my SHOP to purchase.
