Bell Sleeves, Ankara & Denim

Bell Sleeves, Ankara & Denim


Bell sleeves are so in right now and I’ve caught the bug big time. I can’t count how many tops and dresses I have made with these sleeves and I know for a fact that I will make some more.

The bell sleeves trend came back with such a bang, and I hope it stays for a long time. They are so girly, flirty and fun plus they give outfits that pizzazz we all love to see. Talk about some major throw back from the 70’s with a modern twist.

My cousin gave me three yards of this Ankara fabric and I couldn’t for the love of fashion think of what to make with it until Friday morning when I had an ‘epiphany’ Lol.

I gathered the leftover denim fabric from this denim beaded top I made here and made myself this top. I wanted the sleeves to be super big but my leftover denim fabric said no. *sniff sniff*

Bell sleeves, Ankara & Denim, three hot trends in one. wow!!!

I must say that being able to make my own clothes is so fulfilling. It gives me joy.

Remember I mentioned in this post that I am working on my own clothing line? Well it’s slowly coming together and I hope you guys patronize me when I release the pieces. pretty please.

Let’s pause a minute and admire this gorgeous wig gotten from @nappyhairedwigs (check them out on instagram, follow and order yourself one or more).

If you like my top and would like to order one, please send me a DM on Instagram or send me an email

Who says sleeves can’t make a statement all on their own?

Kisses loves!!!

  1. I am also in love with the bell sleeves trend. Ankara and denim, talk about combining faves together, I like the top and the wig.
    I also hope it doesn’t go out of trend anytime soon.

    1. Hi love. Thanks alot. Yes the combination of Ankara and Denim is so cool. I too hope this doesn’t go out of style soon and even if it does, I will still wear mine well. Lol

  2. Love the top!
    I should definitely make something with denim and Ankara soon (have a tailor make it that is cos I can’t sew. LOL)
    Love the wig as well!
    Congratulations on your soon-to-come clothing line! I’m sure it’ll be awesome.

  3. You’ve got a lot up your sleeves these days huh? No pun intended. This is awesome. You’re doing really great. Keep it up. I’m a huge fan.

  4. Issa Look! I really want the bell-sleeves trend to stay. Funny how my mom made me a dress with bell sleeves as a kid and I didn’t know the value because it obviously wasn’t in vogue. This thing called fashion sha. Anyway, the size of the bell sleeves is okay ooo unless you want to fly with them :p iKid. I envy y’all that can sew ?
    If your prices are pocket-friendly we will definitely patronize you.

    Nice one Grace!

    1. That’s the thing about fashion. It keeps coming back. So you were a cool kid from childhood lol. My dear, I dunno why I wanted really big sleeves o. And yes, my clothes will be pocket friendly*big grin* thank alot dear.
