This African skirt was designed by me with no pattern.
I hand drafted 3 panels to make the skirt full with a lot of gathering.
My band is 3 and 1/2 inches wide.
The band has a 3inch wide corset elastic in the back which is in the front band also.
This makes the skirt waist adjustable.
The skirt has 2 hidden pockets in the navy panel of the skirt and it has an invisible zipperin the side. I put in a 5 inch wide hem that is blind hemmed. There is a small dishiki shirt made for her son with splits on the side with a 3 inch hem. The head band with the flower is for the baby girl. Her head wrap is tied around the chest
