The Office, Main...
Usually I’m a bit afraid of prints, but in this case the decision was easy. I used a vintage Butterick pattern – I omitted the front darts and lowered the neckline slighly, otherwise it fit pretty well as it is. The rest of the material is waiting to become a dress – the african fabrics that are sold around where i live come in fixed lenghts, 6 yards, so plenty to go…
Printed cotton – from Afrique Fabriks in Dalston, where all sewing folks in London should buy something at least once because it’s just that fantastic.
