Ankara fabrics are beautiful, versatile and much more affordable than laces. So if you want to improve or upgrade your wardrobe and you have a tight budget, Ankara prints are your best choices. 

They can be sewn alone or mixed with other plain fabrics or with lace fabrics. You can also use it as lining for soft tulle laces and you will be ‘peppering them’ LOL

How to choose a tailor

Hello beautiful people,

Today’s post is on a very controversial topic and a question I get regularly as a fabric vendor from clients. Getting a good tailor or fashion designer seems like hardwork especially in Lagos and when you get a good tailor,so many times they are not so affordable especially at this time in Nigeria.

And I get so skeptical referring my clients to tailors especially clients that are not within lagos because you just cant be too sure…..

So personally, I put some factors in consideration before I choose my tailors ( yes I have  more than One) which I will like to share with you our awesome readers and followers:

1. Type/cost of fabric : For some reasons, I have different tailors for differnt kind of fabrics.

 For instance if I want to sew ankara fabric or a silk fabric that costs less than 5000 Naira, I will take it to low budget tailors around me but one thing I will always check is the finishing of clothes he/ she has sewn before. I will not pay so much for a cheap or low quality fabric but I will ensure I get a neat job. You will be surprised at how good some ‘local’ tailors are when it comes to sewing. But if the fabric in question is expensive , I will not take the risk of giving it to just anyone.

2. Intending style: Another factor I consider is the style I want to make.

Most times if I see a nice design on a person or on someone’s ( with my kind of body structure) social media page , I could approach the person and ask for details of the tailor that made it and patronise such tailors instead of disturbing my head trying to get a new tailor to replicate the design. But if I need to make a simple boubou or regular iro and buba, any regular tailor can make that and I always give them one of my best buba as sample so as to avoid mistakes

3. Creativity: I also check how creative some tailors are by asking them to sketch a design that will suit my body type. If the tailor can sketch something nice right in presence , I can trust him/her to make nice outfits.

4. Time frame: Another major problems with tailors is their ability to deliver on time. So I have learnt to always give them ample time by sending my fabric to them on time.

When you know your tailor is good at what he/she does which also means he/she will always be busy, you need to send fabrics like 2weeks before use.

Another tip is to update your native wear wardrobe with basic colors from time to time (check my post on native wardrobe staples HERE), so you always have something to wear when there’s an ’emergency’ party or event.

5. Test run:This is another tip I use when I see nice designs displayed by a tailor online or offline, I will first of all do a test run by giving him/her a cheap fabric to ‘test ‘ his/her handiwork .The  outcome of the ‘test’ will determine my final decision.

Do you have any tip you will like to share on this topic or will you like to share your experience with different tailors? Please share in the comments section

Do have a great week ahead.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Hello everyone and happy New Year! I know it’s coming quite late but as they say “it’s better late than ever”
For those of you following me on Instagram and on Facebook, I have sent messages out to welcome us all into 2017. so if you are not following @theasoebijunkie on our social media platforms (Face book, Twitter and Instagram)kindly do so now for more updates on the brand.

I will like to specially thank all our blog followers and readers for their immense love towards the brand all through 2016 as we are look forward to a fashion-forward and funfilled 2017. God bless you all.
Like I shared on Instagram, every year i wait for my church to announce our mantra for the year and i just stick to declaring that for myself throughout the year as I set goals and try my best by Gods grace to make them realities. But this year 2017, I’m taking a different route as I have decided to declare a personal mantra for myself which is that 2017 shall be year of PEACE! Over the years, I get so anxious about goals, business decisions and life as a whole and I have discovered that this disturbs me majorly and always have negative effect on me especially my outlook and productivity (including blogging).
So I have made a conscious decision that this year 2017, no matter what happens I Modupe will be PEACEFUL within and without.

Do you have a resolution, goals or a mantra for 2017and Will you like to share them with me? It will be amazing to talk about that in the comments section. Please drop a line or two.

Having done that, I will like us to look forward to an amazing 2017 as I will be sharing great content on African fashion and fabrics as well as sales and personal style posts.

Have a great year ahead!
