Includes The Gathered Summer Top pattern.
This issue all about vibrant colour, print and pattern. Inspired by the V&A exhibition 'Africa Fashion', we delve into the history and provenance of African fabrics showcasing some beautiful examples. We meet colour enthusiast and dyeing expert Sheila White and experiment with some of this season's bright colours.
The pattern included with this magazine is for a gathered summer top and dress with curved hem detailing. To help perfect those curved hems, Claire Tyler provides her tips for sewing success.
