I made myself this skirt in summer 2011, from a Kanga that I had bought in Kenya about 6 years before. My daughter (then 2.5) really liked it, so I made the miniature one for her out of the leftovers.
The style is a really basic yoke with a gathered skirt. I copied the yoke from an existing favourite skirt, the just gathered a big rectangular panel for the skirt.
The Swahili on the skirt reads “nakutakia kila la kheri”, which (according to the internet) means “I wish you all the best”.
Very lightweight cotton – I would guess batiste.
This collection will make you shine in front of the camera!
