This pattern is perfect for beginners. Whether you are new to sewing, new to African wax prints or both! For more experienced sewers, you'll be able to complete this project in about an hour or so. Pattern matching can be tricky when sewing with wax prints, however, with only 2 pattern pieces, pattern matching is a breeze!
Great news! Dovetailed African wax print fabrics have been featured in the dressmaking section of Sew Magazine's August 2019 edition!
With a marketplace of quality exhibitors selling supplies for your own textile projects, artists and makers selling handcrafted work, a programme of talks, participatory sessions, demonstrations and bookable workshops, thread is a packed day out.
I wanted to create a sewing pattern that was genuinely easy and 'Althea' is that pattern. It's perfect for new sewers and with only two pattern pieces, it makes pattern matching a breeze. More experienced sewers should be able to make this skirt in about an hour or so.
