Beautiful handmade jumpsuit made of African fabric with a vibrant print. The jumpsuit has a zip at the back and a belt around the waist.

Because our tailors use different parts of the fabric, the product can be slightly different from the picture. Therefore every item is unique!   Source: Becliadua Jumpsuit Vibrant – Zuvaa
