The fabric is actually not real batik because the pattern is printed, but it’s cotton and very comfortable. As the pattern of the fabric is rich enough, I made it into a simple dress and finished the neckline and armholes with binding strips. When turned around, the dress has a pair of ties in the back, tied into a bow tie.
