African Block Printed Fabric Top
Tah dah! Today I wore my new top, made from the African Block Printed Fabric that I bought last month. Who knew that the prints we think of as typically African were probably produced in Holland?!
My Nigerian friend made me this top and a very funky skirt from my material. I totally LOVE them, the print is so colourful and happy.
The skirt is a bit too long for me and needs shortening. However, I am on an extended trip away from home and so I will get a photo of the whole outfit, including the skirt, recorded in late August when I am home again and have some time to take the hem up!
