Sewing with African Wax Print Fabric

25 vibrant projects for handmade clothes and accessories by Adaku Parker (Author)

African wax prints are colourful designs influenced by batik, an Indonesian method of dyeing cloth using wax-resist techniques. The cotton fabric is super-easy to use and Adaku Parker has developed 25 step-by-step projects to make a wide range of stylish pieces with it. There are instant wardrobe classics like a shirt dress, A-line skirts, and culottes, and wonderful accessories such as tote bags, a zip purse and a headband. All the basic techniques you will need are also explained, so you’ll feel confident with essentials like attaching waistbands, gathering, pleats, making buttonholes and adding linings. There are projects suitable for all skill levels, so all you need is some gorgeous African wax print fabric, and a sewing machine, and you’ll be on your way to updating your wardrobe with unique pieces that will help you stand out from the crowd.

Includes full-size patterns in a wide range of sizes, from UK 8 to UK 26.
