Description

I love the idea of a dressed up tee – one you can totally use at the office.
African print fabric have always been my favorite because of the use of bright colors.
I reworked an Aenne Burda pattern that was initially the one of a dress, with rectangles of fabric assembled together.
I wanted to keep the full print of my fabric in 1 piece, so I just added 2 darts on the sides.
It works great with simple dark trousers and pumps.

    very nice tee, and I love the print! did you use a knit, or is it a woven?

      Thank you Marina! I used a printed fabric, although I think that woven patterns are the most beautiful ones. I actually bought it when I visited a friend in French Guyana, close to Brazil, where there are plenty of african print fabric shops (heaven!!).
