London, United K...






Retro inspired modified Vogue V8615 bodice with deepend arm holes and V back. Entire bodice is shortened at the waist.
Skirt is a gathered rectangle with pockets.

Material Notes

Shell is 100% printed cotton purchased at an African fabric store in east London. Fell in love with the white and green contrast against the gold flecks.
Heavier white cotton used for bodice lining to add structure green fabric is very lightweight. Lighter weight cotton used for skirt lining.

    Lovely design and very nice fabric! I was wondering if you can give a clue about where in East London to find African textiles…
