Batik dresses... I love you!


I am very happy to introduce you to the last two dresses in batik fabrics (traditional Indonesian fabrics) that I completed recently. For once I didn't buy the materials, as my customer came to me asking for two pretty dresses for her little ones (7 and almost-5 years old girls). 


A-shaped dress, size 6-7Y, April 2012

I suggested the patterns, which I make myself, and if you are familiar with the dresses I make, you will notice immediately that I have made these designs before. What was interesting this time around though, was the use of a plain fabric matching the floral print to create interesting highlights.



I adore the fact that each dress reflects perfectly the character and age of the little girl it belongs too. That's what a made-to-measure dress should be all about, right?

My trademark when it comes to dresses: the belt and bow dress is a classic!


All the colors & flowers make me so happy, do you like batik fabrics as much as I do?
