I took classes in pattern cutting, tailoring, clothes making and African fashion (to name a few) in 2016 / 2017 and started the business in 2017. After several customers asked what they could make with these fabrics, I decided to create a range of sewing patterns specifically for use with African wax print fabrics.
There are currently five sewing patterns available to buy from Dovetailed (a skirt, a top, a dress, wide-leg trousers and a coat), two brand new patterns (two dresses and one peplum top - all of which are magazine commissions). There are also lots more patterns available in the sewing book called: 'Sewing with African Wax Print Fabric.' The book is available to order on Amazonhttps://amzn.to/3puP8dO, however, if your very own copy that has been signed by the author, you can only get one of those from me at https://dovetailed.co.uk/collections/sewing-books. All patterns range from UK sizes 8 - 26.
In this collection, you can shop from a range of sewing patterns perfect for sewing with African wax prints. These dressmaking patterns are designed with African wax prints in mind. Each pattern has as few pattern pieces as possible making pattern matching a breeze and allowing you to show off these gorgeous fabrics to best effect!
