Description

The fabric was found by my parents in Africa some decades ago, and left for dying in some closet…I think it’s really beautiful and wanted to use a very simple pattern that would not overweight its power. Once again I worked without any pattern and adusted and ajusted till it finally fitted! I twisted a bit the fabric on the front, it compensates for what I have not ;-)
the result looks quite ethnic, it’sdifferent from what I usually do but I love it!
