Yes, the ankara ruler. I received this fabric a long time ago as a gift. And for a long time it stayed in my wardrobe untouched because I really didn’t know what to do with it. All I knew was that I didn’t want to use it as a two piece wrapper. Considering the design of this African print known as “ruler”, that was the only obvious option to me.
Until an idea struck. Why not take a chance and use it for a feminine styled top and see how it turns out? Fingers crossed, I took it to my tailor, told her what I wanted and asked her to make a straight long skirt to go with it.
Since I’m here striking poses with the top on skinnies, I obviously like the outcome. What other style can one make with the ankara ruler?
