This batik dress was entirely handmade using organic cotton, pure beeswax, and traditional methods of genuine batik. The colors are created with a triple layer submersion technique using cold water process dyes, which are set between layers of hand painted, molten beeswax. Each dress is slightly different, and perfect for all seasons - layering over leggings, under a warm sweater or jacket, or as a beautiful piece to wear for summer festivals and events.
The edges are raw cut and do not fray. The soft organic cotton material has been carefully chosen for its quality and strength. The batik design and color is very durable and the fabric will not shrink with regular machine washing and drying. My batik process is rigorous enough to determine a quality garment that will withstand decades of wear and appreciation.
Measurements are taken with the dress laying flat, not stretched. The style is designed to stretch gently, but not stretch out. The knit fabric complements the body's shape and gently loosens over the course of the day. The sizing and shape remains consistent with washing and drying, and the batik painting will stay vibrant for years to come. Here is an album of me testing out a size medium before I batiked the dress -> (this was a while ago, but the dress fits the same)
The style and design is reversible and can be worn either front or back.
