Folkwear - Ghanian Smock - 158
This product is currently sold out.
This loose-fitting top originated in northern Ghana, but is now worn in many areas of West Africa, and has become popular around the world. It is called fugu, or batakari, among other terms in Ghana, and is generally made from hand-woven strips of fabric with wedge-shaped godets inserted below the chest to give it a flared shape.
This pattern is great for fabric artists, weavers, and fabric lovers. Almost any fabric will do, from your own woven strips to regular yardage - just tear or cut it into strips and sew the strips together.
