I've always admired this pattern, and your version, headwrap and all, is just PERFECT! Love that flash of lining, too. :o)

Marvelous! Just saw your review of your husband's outfit and had to see if there was a review for yours. Looks super.

Absolutely gorgeous. You and your husband wear Nigerian fashion quite well. I love the contrast lining you used for your skirt and the embroidery around the neckline! It's perfect! An experience you won't soon forget I'm sure! Nice work!

So so pretty, looks great for a Nigerian wedding! Your necklace is a perfect match, too.

That lining makes the dress! I love the extra pop of color. Great choice!
