2016 started with various projects. I have been able to complete a major project- sewing my 1st half gomesi dress. YAY!!!! Gomesi is a traditional dress worn in my home country-Uganda. It's especially worn on special occasions. For instance, engagement parties. In addition, I made a lesser bulky traditional petticoat known as a kikoyi.The kikoyi is an A shaped skirt. Both half gomesi and kikoyi make your special occasion feel beautiful and comfy, in other words, less clothing.
I was born very cultural family, especially my mother's side. Being a grand daughter of the late Reverend Canon Polycarp Kakooza -
Composer of Ekitibwa kya Buganda makes me proud to have made the gomesi.
