skintone wax print dress

Brussels, Belgium






The second piece of wax printed fabric that my friend brought back from Benin, this one is somwhat thinner; I’m thinking maybe I should line it, but it was very comfy today in the end-of-summer sun! Not my usual choice of colours, but it’s grown on me! I used a pattern from Ottobre 2/2013 and added pockets and piping.

    Ooh! The other wax print! It looks great! I love the dress shape too and the piping detail suits the style perfectly! And this reminds me to photograph my other wax print dress – thank you!

      Why, thank you! And yes, your other dress, we’re waiting! Surely at some point you will have to take the long one off… perhaps an advantage of cooler weather is you could maybe wear it with tights?

      Sorry! I’m a bit bogged down with courses at the moment, but. I will post it soon, I promise! I wish we had cooler weather here (it is a tiny bit cooler now the rainy season now), but I don’t think I will ever need tights (which is very sad because I have some great very brightly coloured ones) :-(

    A nice dress; pattern and fabric are chosen very good and although you say it’s not your colour set, you look very harmonically in it, it suits you.
