Creations at Abbi Creation Fashion Internship, Ghana

October 30, 2011

Sunny days and calm nights. Ghana was a dream I woke up from a little over a month ago. Here are some photos of the dresses I made during my fashion internship at Abbi Creation in Nungua. Above is the dashiki dress I learned how to make. One of the few times I’ve designed and sewn free hand. I love this dress, it short, sexy, fun and funky. Definitely not your regular dashiki shirt. I never knew that they sold dashiki fabric my the yard and you could craft it into anything you want. More pics below. I’m selling this dress in different sizes in my Etsy Shop. It’s one of my best sellers.

Me trying on the dress I made for my roomie.

My roomie trying on the dress. She found the fabric in the market place and was like “can you make something for me?” Lol. The jokes with the Dream Ghana crew.

Through the internship I learned how to sew on an industrial sewing machine, an industrial serger, and hand-crank non/electric Singer machine.
