Description

I realised I didn’t have any ethnic clothes in my wardrobe and made my first attempt. I wanted to use a genuine capulana (traditional Mozambique fabric) but had no idea where to buy it. Instead I used printed cotton, but I’m very, very happy with the way it turned out.
Pattern mods:
I shorten the pattern about 10 cm and tighten from the waistline to bottom, in order to reduce the bulk around the hips.
I added in-seam pockets.

    Very nice. The fabric works really well. The obi-style belt is very flattering too.
