Top Tips for Sewing with African Wax Print Fabric, With Dovetailed and Hochanda

Dovetailed London is a business that sells African wax print fabric, sewing patterns and sewing supplies. With a great understanding in textiles, specifically: clothes making, tailoring, pattern cutting, decorative techniques and African fashion, Dovetailed’s fabrics are sure to make a bold and stunning statement.

The sewing patterns are made in-house with the fabrics in mind to best show off the beautiful intricacy of the designs. The fabric is made from 100% cotton and is printed on both sides of the fabric using a ‘wax’ resist method of printing that is similar to batik.

Adaku Parker from Dovetailed has put together this very helpful list of tips for sewing with African wax print fabric, exclusively for Hochanda!
