Iro & Buba

Hello loves!
Welcome to a new week. Hope you enjoyed your weekend. Mine was good. Was super busy working on EliFab. I have so exciting news in that regards and will share when the time comes.

Today, I'm sharing another one of my DIY projects. For my non Nigerian / African readers, this outfit Is a traditional style outfit called Iro & buba (top & wrapper) in Nigeria (Yoruba). Not going to give much history as you can goggle to learn more. The top is usually a loose/baggy fit with long sleeves but that has change as this style has definitely evolve over the years and has been modernized. It went from one or two specific style cut for the top to various variation including but not limited to short sleeve, 3/4 sleeve, long sleeve, fitted top, off shoulder...and much more. For the wrap, you can tie is various ways as well; full length like I did, short or the new style "tulip" style. You can see a version of the original traditional cut in my wedding post here.
Have a blessed day!
