Baby Dresses – Shweshwe: A South African Treasure

These dresses are a Custom order. This Granny wanted dresses reminiscent of her home, Africa. I used beautiful fabrics made right here in South Africa, and embellished each with a further reminder of Mother Africa.

The blue, red and brown dresses are made with a crocheted yoke, and the skirt with a South African Fabric called Shweshwe.

  • The Blue dress has a “necklace” of beads and a tiny zebra on the yoke
  • The Red dress has 2 butterflies and an adorable pink elephant on the yoke
  • The Brown dress has 3 African beads on the yoke

The last dress has a crocheted yoke and chiffon tutu skirt
