Bow tie blue orange dress

Added Oct 2, 2009

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 .
