I prepare to travel through out Ghana, learning about textile and sewing production. To begin my travels I had a uniform made, so I can assimilate to local dress. The fabric was purchased on a Sunday morning in Makoha Market, from Alime. I purchased 6 yards for 80 CD. 28.18 Dollars, which is about 4.69 per yard.
The uniform was produced by Cadling Fashions, Ghana. The cost for sewing was 50 CD, 17.06
Here was the finished product.
