My Brother Goes to Prom!

Being the queen of ankara print fashion, I wanted to make sure him and his prom date looked superb in true elegant ankara style.

The suit and gown was designed and handmade by me, yours truly.

It took me 2 days to make the gown, suit and bowtie.

I think I did an awesome job. Especially for someone who started making bowties 2 years ago! *Pats self on back.

We found out this week that he is the Salutatorian for the Class of 2015. This means he has the 2nd highest GPA (Grade Point Average) out of the entire graduating class (4.1 out of 4.0 grade scale).  I am super proud of him!
