niger delta skirt and wrapper

Hello and how has your week been? Hope you are having a blast?

This post should have been tagged Sunday’s best because I actually wore this outfit to church on Sunday. Tying two wrapper has been a culture of the Niger Delta women but recently they added a twist to it; i.e the young women who cannot stand tying wrappers had to start sewing skirts under and ‘manage’ to tie just one wrapper on top and looks real good if not better.

I see them using all manner of fabrics for these; ranging from Ankara to Lace material, Indian fabrics and the evergreen George fabric.
They make beautiful blouses, tie different styles of gele/head-tie and most importantly holding their white handkerchiefs and chanting ‘Iye’ during praise and thanksgiving in church.
So I bought this six yards material (seriously don’t know the name but it’s not a George material) because the fabric is more of cotton used it to sew a six pieces skirt, a wrapper and also made a head-tie. Some cloth management there!

Don’t really like tying wrappers (even our own iro and buba na by force) but I love the skirt and wrapper combo and am in the south now so I just had to go with the flow:

The simple blouse


Here is the six pieces skirt


skirt and blouse only( no head-tie , no wrapper)

Now with the head-tie and i tried knotting the wrapper on top of the skirt

Wrapper on top of skirt (regular tying)

I left my White handkerchief out (covers face), but will still sing ‘ayiba preye preye preye’

wishing you a lovely week ahead




The month of November is drawing close to its end and of course we will definitely not miss our monthly Aso-ebi diva series.
Today our Aso-ebi diva is a fabulous woman; Biodun Adebutu Dosunmu.
Biodun was my classmate at the University of Lagos and all through the time we were in class together all I can say about this diva is that she is intelligent, beautiful, kind-hearted, fabulous and a very smart lady.
I would also like to add that Biodun is a fashion designer and she had a fashion outfit somewhere in Surulere, Lagos when she was in Nigeria and she actually made a dress for me at that time that was well-tailored and really nice.
Abi( short form of Abiodun) has a great fashion sense and looks very trendy in our African fabrics, so I just had to feature her as an Aso-ebi diva here for you all.
Even though Biodun is now married and a mum to 4 boys, she still looks super sexy with a gorgeous body.
One thing that makes this diva stand out is that she knows how to combine colours as well as accessories to match her skin color very well.
So please join me *clapping* as I present to you our Aso-ebi diva for the month of November 2013; the beautiful, elegant, stylish and trendy Abioun Adebutu-Dosunmu
