Description

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.

    It’s adorable. I especially love the bow in the back and the front neck line…

      Thank you!
      Yes I made the pattern myself. It’s pretty basic, just a slight A-line dress with bust darts. If you want to make it, you can use a simple dress pattern and change the back zipper into ties like this .
