The One With Batiks & Blacks

When I first saw the fabric, I though I would frame it as a remnant of my travels… and then I figured photographs do that already and I might as well stitch this up. So after thinking of multiple designs and going through several Pinterest posts, I settled on a simple shift dress. The front is of Batik fabric and the back is a blend of jersey and silk which makes the dress stretchable enough to put on and off without placing a zipper.

I had to tack in the neckline using a black facing.

The dress turned out well. I am in love with the print and colours.

Thought to accessorise with a yellow handbag which I also picked up in Kuala Lumpur.

This dress used up less than a metre of the fabric, I had previously used up some for the finishing of a kurti.
