happy belated batik day..!!!


this is the story about this batik dress. i got the batik sarong from my mother in law, it's a cheap batik sarong that you can buy only Rp. 15.000,-. i just in love with the dark blue color and the brown pattern, except for a rough kind of fabric.

this is the first time a made a dress, i cut it with my own pattern and sew it with my hand, yes with a hand sticht !!! it took 2 days and voila...!!! I never thought that the result will be like this. simple, but very worthed for two days of struggle,lol...

in 2007, batik is still be the formal outfit, rarely used for daily outfit. but me againts the mainstream, i wear it to the mall, to the cafe, hang with my friend and complete it with a pairs of jeans and a sneaker,lol...

yes and i can see all the people eyes watched me like a weirdo, and some friend asking me a same question like: r u came from a wedding party or something??? and not for so long and then batik became booming, everyone wearing batik in every occasion and they wear it with a proud feeling as a nationalism (where have u been guys ???).

but it's okay, i'm glad to know that we get to fight for batik as our national fabric and we got it rite...!!! happy belated batik day...

happy crafting ya'll...

xoxo
