I tried to make her understand that though long dresses cover you up, they still flaunt your body if you’d let them. So, I asked her to give it a shot by sewing a long dress with an Ankara fabric. Then I picked one of the styles you’re about to see here for her. She took it to her seamstress and boom! With the way it looked on her, she almost swore never to wear short dresses again.

Although, Ankara long dresses are usually dramatic because of their length and print, these ones aren’t as dramatic as their statement counterpart. They are simple, not because they are drab; but because they’ve got no other statement feature in them save for their length or fabric print. You can otherwise call them mildly-dramatic Ankara long dresses.
