Dovetailed London is owned by the designer Adaku Parker and is an African wax print fabric shop. Her fabric is gorgeous, full of vibrant colour and beautiful patterns. We are really excited to be stocking Dovetailed's range of paper patterns, designed specifically to be used with African wax print fabric. Each pattern has as few pattern pieces as possible making pattern matching a breeze and allowing you to show off these gorgeous fabrics to their best effect!

All patterns range from UK sizes 8 - 26, US 4 - 22, Europe 36 - 54.

All patterns include a full colour instruction booklet and a full scale multi-sized pattern sheet. 

Althea is a sewing pattern for an A-line skirt with an integrated elasticated waistband with pockets (because every skirt needs pockets)! It an easy sew with only two pattern pieces, making it perfect for beginners. For more experienced sewers, you'll be able to complete this project in an hour or so. 

This skirt has no darts or zips. It has a gathered effect at the waistband. The pattern includes lengthening and shortening lines allowing you to adjust the finished hem to the length of your choice.

Fabric suggestions: wax print, light weight & medium weight cotton, gauze, linen, silks, chambray, georgette & poplin.
