All the techniques, step-by-step instructions, and patterns you need to make 25 African wax print garments and accessories.


African wax prints are colorful 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, as well as wonderful accessories such as tote bags, a zip purse, and a headband. The basic techniques you will need are all explained, so you'll feel confident with essentials like attaching waistbands, gathering, pleats, making buttonholes, and adding linings. The projects are suitable for all skill levels--there are skirts that are made from only two pieces of fabric, the perfect first garment for beginners, as well as shift dresses with sleeves for you to fine-tune your sewing repertoire. 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.
