It might interest you to know that Ankara didn’t originate from Africa. It was originally intended for the Indonesian market, but it found a more enthusiastic market in West Africa, where it became a symbol of traditional and high-quality fashion. It spread from West Africa to other parts of Africa and worldwide.

If you have a larger figure and don’t want to appear even bigger, avoid tapered to the floor or tight styles. Please choose a free cut. You can go with an open neckline style if you want to draw attention to the beauty of your cleavage.

What do I need for Ankara long gown styles?

  1. Fabric

After picking a long Ankara dress style, the first thing you want to put in place is fabric. Lots of fabric, but I’m not saying you should buy the whole market, dear.

Since the gown will be long and maybe flowing, you’ll need a good length of Ankara print fabric.

However, when shopping for fabrics, remember there are fake ones, and nobody wants that.

So, how can you tell if Ankara fabric is fake?

By touching the fabric, you can tell if it’s fake. If the fabric is soft and flexible, it could be real wax. It is most likely fake if the fabric feels harsh, hard, and stiff, like paper or cardboard.

Good Ankara fabric is smooth to the touch and soft against the skin. They have a high resistance to damage.

Ankara prints are made using the Indonesian wax-resist dyeing technique known as BATIK. They’re of high quality and unlikely to scratch easily.

  1. Colour

Colors play a major role when selecting an outfit because they can set the mood in and around you. 

Wearing shades of bright colors has a feel to them. It has an impact on how you feel and how others perceive you. Wearing bold, warm colors has been shown to improve people’s moods. 

Dopamine, also known as the feel-good hormone, is produced when you wear bold, warm colors. It’s true.

It’s so important to consider color when shopping for Ankara fabrics to wear. This is because skin tone influences color selection significantly. So after choosing a style, it is critical to consider the best-fitting color for your skin.

If dark-skinned, go for vibrant colors like yellow, red, and orange. And if you’re light-skinned, darker colors like black and blue will look awesome on you. 

Thankfully, Ankara fabrics have really great colors, so you have nothing to worry about.

  1. Cost

Good Ankara fabrics don’t come cheap, honey, and you’re sewing a long dress, so you’re buying a lot of it. 

You have to consider the cost of the fabric. Most times, when your tailor recreates a dress, and it doesn’t have the oomph like the one you saw on a model or catalog, it could just be because you used the wrong fabric or a fake one. 

Fake ones come cheaper, you know. So when you’ve picked the Ankara long gown style you want to recreate, consider the cost. And make sure you buy from a good store, so you get value for your money.
