A fun twist on a classic business skirt, the Wax Print Pencil Skirt comes in a range of wax prints all sourced from markets in Senegal and Ghana. The fit is snug, and the skirt sits just above the knee.

We have used the same basic pattern to make this skirt in a range of print fabrics. This means that for each kind of print, there is only one or two pieces available. We do not have every print available in every size (however all the prints are beautiful!).If you let us know your size, we can tell you which prints are available.
