Hello there. Welcome back. For this week’s look, I want to share this vibrant dress I made for Mood Fabric’s Africontest contest. The contest was held on Mood Fabric’s Instagram page and voting was held on their Facebook page. The contest required using African printed fabric from Mood Fabric’s and making anything from it and sharing it on their Instagram page in order to win a $100 gift card to use on http://www.mooodfabric.com.

P.S.
Unfortunately I didn’t win the contest, someone else who using the same fabric did.
