Description

This is the first mix and match ensemble i sew with 2 different african cotton wax fabrics. (You can buy some here: vlisco.com) . For this time i used McCall’s patterns M6961 for the top and M7098 for the pants .(for petite size. I used a size 18 because of the hips measurements they advised, but it was way too large , so i had to cut the excess of fabric and make some darts on thone front). I drew and added the collar myself , it wasn’t included in the pattern.

    As loud and as unusual it is compared to what i normally wear and/or make, I actually really like this one! and the mixing of patterns is really en vogue these days, so great job :)
