Dovetailed London is owned by the designer Adaku Parker and is an African wax print fabric shop full of vibrant coloured fabric 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 include a full colour instruction booklet and a full scale multi-sized pattern sheet.
The Jasmine blouse is the seventh stand-alone pattern from the Dovetailed London range. This blouse is a ruffle lovers dream with the collar, peplum and sleeve cuff all constructed using a gathering technique to create a ruffle effect. Finish the blouse with either shop bought buttons or why not make your own covered buttons?
Make this your own by using a mix and match of two different wax print designs in similar colour ways. This makes for a distinctly unique garment that is also a great way of using up some of your smaller pieces of fabric.
