fun with batiks

my sister got some batiks from Bali from her recent holiday trip there.  she sent them to me and i was tasked to turned them into something wearable. these are the results.

this piece of lovely blue with big pink flower motif was used to make a sleeveless dress/night gown for our niece. i did not use any pattern, just cut the piece as would a peasant dress style.

this one can either be a nightie or a summer beach wear i guess. again, no pattern, just a little of random cutting and turning it into a simple piece of clothing. i used bias tape to finish the bodice and double up as the shoulder strap, which is adjustable. this dress is made for my sister of course.

each dress takes less than one-lil-j-nap hour (read: no more than 2 hours)

and i still have two more pieces of batik to go.. i haven’t quite decided what to do with them for now… maybe a dress for myself.. hmm… we’ll see

What then shall we say?  Is God unjust?  Not at all!  For he says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.”  It does not, therefore, depend on man’s desire or effort, but on God’s mercy.  Romans 9:14-16
