Dovetailed London is owned by the designer Adaku Parker and is an African wax print fabric shop, full of vibrant colour and beautiful fabrics and 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.
The Camille Dress has a separate bodice (which is lined) and circle skirt. It includes stunning sleeves and is finished with an invisible zip. "Does it have pockets you ask", why, yes of course! This gorgeous dress also has a choice of two hems. The inclusive size range is from UK sizes 8 - 26. If you are making this dress in sizes 8 - 18 you will need 5 yards of 45" wide fabric and for sizes 20 - 26 you will need 6 yards of 45" wide fabric. 1 yard measures 91 cm (in length) and African wax print fabrics are between 45" - 47" wide (1.2 m).
