Would You Buy Ready-To-Wear Ankara Dresses Or Rather Sew ?

This is not selling, its just an opinion survey;   

Would you buy Ankara Ready to wear online? You know like off-the rack clothes in different sizes.

I need your opinion about buying Ready to wear dresses, beautiful skirt and blouse in African textile. And if so, how much would you pay for say a dress in the currency of the country you are living in.

please just respond by typing, for example:

Yes    £30   

(or)

No   would rather buy material and sew

hi personally ankara material is sold for £5 to 10, the tailor charge at least 30.00. so to have a garment made in you style and the material is provided at least 30.00 to 40.00. or i personally would like to choose my own material and design it myself. i like to wear something no one is wearing so personalised garments are the best. oh, and if your designs are different and unique with a touch of western design like on the cat walk, you can charge more. i would personally get someone to design the patterns of your choice label them and sell it along with your design.GOD bless

@ Omoge and everyone interested.

I am based in both London and Nigeria, actually i have been living in the UK and deal in Bespoke/Couture Tailoring, and i am expanding my business to nigeria in 2007. But, reading the forum after a long time since i posted the very first question about RTW Ankara dresses. I can offer online ordering, my site will be live in the next 2-3 weeks and you will be able to pick the ankara of your choice, enter your measurements and mail me a picture (in order to be able to get a better fit of your body shape), and just like that i mail you your finished garment. Finally, payment is made through paypal. No fraud, no complications , just good fashion dressing contact.

So it doesnt matter if you are in the US or UK, other parts of the world, i get the fabrics of your desire from nigeria and post it out to you - no exurbitant charging! And for lovers of Boned bodices,and corsets - i am your girl!!

Hey guys just to gear off the topic a lil bit.

I live in the US and I am looking for where to buy nice african attire. I don't have a single one. I see a lot of young african ladies spotting nice african wear in weddings and other functions and i always wonder whether they bought it here or from naija. I need help with some info like websites or where I can get good materials and a good tailor to sew. Please Help. Thanks.
