Little Batik Dress

This is the first dress I made for my little one. The feeling when I see her in this dress is amazing, so pleased it fits her well. My mom used to sew us dresses and I’m happy that I’d be able to do the same for my daughter.

The batik fabric is the one I bought from Jakarta years ago, it’s initially planned for homedecor project like the one I did here. When I was looking for materials in my fabric stash, I remembered I had this one and thought this batik fabric would work perfect combined with left over blue batik (for the shoulder ties and pockets). I do not have pattern or tutorial for this post, sorry… the pattern is made spontaneous and sewn  after my little one went to sleep, somehow it felt like racing with time between being sleepy and wanted to go to bed and being determined to finish it that night 🙂 …..I hope it still brings you inspiration.

Believe it or not, the hardest part was actually to get a nice picture of her wearing this dress. Maybe she also felt the excitement I felt, she just kept running around and moving. This is the best I could get.
