This dress made from madura batik , one of the traditional batik from East Java - Indonesia. I bought last month from one of the store in Tunjungan Plaza - Surabaya.

The pattern from selfdrafting pattern by myself. I made muslin from very cheap cotton before I make the dress. The style of the dress is pretty simple but really cute. 3/4 sleeve is good for spring season. With some pleated in the front skirt and some pleated in the right shoulder. This is the drawing of my batik dress: Material needed for this dress: - madura batik, the fabric already come in pieces for more less 2 1/4 m - lighweight interfacing - same colour thread - invisible zipper The
