Tobi: DIY 'Circle The Dots' Maxi Dress

I haven't done any personal style posts lately - simply because there's been no one around to take my pictures! For Femi's birthday last weekend, I decided to take a cue from my very artsy sister (who designs practically everything she wears) and design something for myself!  Here's what I came up with: a mixed polka maxi dress with wrap-style top. I'm wearing the dress with a DIY Pearl Cluster necklace made by my other artsy sister, Dami.
 
Femi had two parties (yep, you heard right!)- one at an orphanage with a few select friends and family (and many deserving little kids) and another for her school mates and friends! Here we are at the orphanage... 

 What do you think of this dress? Did I do a good job-
or should I leave designing to the designers? :)
Holla back...
