I went to the market right by our home in London and haggled for some African fabric. The woman I bought the fabric from was bemused with my bartering and let me have 5 yards of this gorgeous cloth for just £12.00.
I made myself a skirt with a pattern that I drafted myself.
Then, one day…..
I wore the skirt that I made on trip to the Mercado do Bolhão in Porto.
The skirt is a voluminous garment with deep in seam pockets. It is quite ostentatious in its pattern and colouring but somehow – it suits busy environments and is perfect for comfortable saunters through a market. The Mercado do Bolhão is a pretty special place and I will be blogging about its again very soon.
