DIY AFRICAN PRINT MIDI SKIRT

Hey Beautiful people, how are we all doing.
It feels like ages since I've been on here but If you follow me on Instagram @Princessaudu then you would know that I took a little vacation to Obudu Cattle Ranch, one of the top tourist destinations in Cross River State and Nigeria. And I had a great time, I took tones of pictures and can't wait to post them.
Moving on, if you recall from my Taking Stock post for the month of August, I mentioned that I was learning how to sew. I signed up for a beginners class offered through NYSC and now, I can make basic skirts, dresses and tops (ticked off my learning a new skill resolution). We all know what's going on in our economy, hence learning how to make your own clothes is a great way to kill it on a budget as mentioned in a broke Chic's guide to stay fashionable on a budget.
Now, this African print skirt took me about three hours to complete. It's super easy and now I wonder how in the past I actually paid tailors to make this for me. Oh well, I guess ignorance is a weakness. Anyways when styling the Ankara skater skirt, I opted for my burgundy turtle neck top (featured here and here) and some basic court shoes since the print of the skirt is so vibrant.
