Maybe it was my decision to go natural or maybe it was my introduction to Chinedesign or maybe it’s the fashion industry’s focus on all things Africa but I’ve been obsessed with African wax print fabric. I’ve made two skirts (one gathered waist and one mini), a head wrap and a headband using the colourful fabric but I feel I need to add more pieces to my wardrobe. So, the fifth item on my 12 Days of Christmas Countdown wish list is the Sika Blue Birds shirt dress.

I was first introduced to Sika by one of my favourite natural hair blogs K is for Kinky. Phyllis Taylor, the designer of the London-based clothing line, uses natural fabrics from Ghana to create her colourful standout creations. I love the marriage of African fabrics and prints with Western design and the gorgeous saturated colours.
