Tie & dye fabrics are a versatile, cheap and very often untapped resource that can replenish and revive our wardrobes if used cleverly. A tie & dye garment can be worn with something that has been in our wardrobe forever and give it new life the African way.
Eight different tie & dye options are explored for you to find something that will work for you and give an African revival to your wardrobe. After taking a break last week, here is the seventh.
This outfit is perfect for all office functions and parties. It is both elegant and formal, a great combination for schmoozing at that corporate cocktail.
This outfit is great for concealing a fuller tummy and it also disguises a fuller waistline by drawing attention to the bust area.
Fabrics that are ideal for this outfit are linen, silk, bazaar and suiting fabric. An abstract tie & dye pattern is best for this outfit.
1 Â½-2 metres of double width fabric is needed for the tunic. (The taller and fuller the figure, the more the fabric required)
2-2Â½ metres of fabric will be needed for the trouser.
This should ideally be in linen or suiting fabric. (The taller and fuller the figure, the more the fabric required).
