Sewing With African Wax Print Fabrics by Adaku Parker
Adaku Parker founded Dovetailed London in 2016. Her business imports beautiful African wax print fabrics and she creates sewing patterns that showcase the prints at their best.
African wax prints are colourful designs influenced by batik, an Indonesian method of dyeing cloth using wax-resist techniques. Adaku Parker has developed 25 step-by-step projects to make a wide range of stylish pieces with it. These include: a shirt dress, culottes, an A-line skirt, bags, a purse and a headband. All the basic techniques are clearly explained. The book includes full-size patterns in a wide range of sizes, from UK 8 to UK 26.
