I like the look of african clothing, the garments appear comfortable yet elegant. Where can I find the patterns, mostly interested in the skirt sets?

I have a couple of McCalls and Butterick patterns (now Out of print) for traditional styled African patterns. McCall's still makes this one

McCall's 4002

another idea is to find a skirt suit or dress pattern that you like and use African prints for the fabric.

I really like these websites as inspiration:www.africouleur.com & 1st African Clothing & sankofa african bazaar (NAYY for either)

edited to add: you might be able to find some patterns on E-bay.

I buy lots of 'african prints'..wax fabrics and so on. I sew them up in any pattern that suits...rather than specifically african ones. Probably, empire waist dresses, tunic shirts and straight skirts would fit your bill... I've used new look 6239 with lots of different wax fabrics successfully.
