The hot weather dictates light fabrics and the print of the fabric dictates simple pattern ( I should avoid any extra seams and lines) :) For me the colouristics and the print of this cambric is associated with Africa’s images so I chose the name. The pattern is from Burda magazine 11/2007 #110.
I lengthened the dress because of quite big print and loose silhouette not to break the proportions. As a line of simmetry for cutting I chose those purple circles with blue intarsia (they remind me pine-apples:)) and thus I got a long remnant stripe of fabric. I use it either as a headband or a scarf depending on the level of hotness:))
