Ahhh the beauty of batik!  I absolutely LOVE batik fabric!!  The colors, texture!

I had been planning to do a summer line of batik print halter dresses for the summer since last year.  Finally did it this year!  Here are a few! Also I thought it would be cute to do some kiddie feather fascinators and headbands to go with these colorful dresses.  I make accessories to go with EVERYTHING I make so I thought this would be a great deviation from my usual hairbows. 

Lastly I had my first fashion show and open House for my designs last month.  I had  12 lil models and 2 modeled the batik dresses.  As you can see I've been workin, workin, workin!!!  More in the making!

Those are sooooo fantastic! I agree Batik fabric is the best, I always drool over it when I got to the fabric store!! I am in love with one of the dresses in particular, the eighth one, it looks like 'the universe'. I can't wear it, but if I could I would love to own it, either way, I'm wisting it. You're sewing skills are crazy fantastic!!

That's exactly what I thought when I got that fabric.  I called it Odyssey and it was one of a kind.  Someone snatched it up at the show.  In fact the lil girl threw a tantrum crying, pouting cause her mom wouldn't buy it.  She had already bought 5 pr of bows.  Needless to say her mom gave in and I was tickled pink!

Thanks for the compliments! 

I want to put this out there.  That teal and brown is a favorite of mines, unfortunately I only had enough fabric to make one!  I have searched and searched for that fabric!  If anyone knows where I can get some or sees some PLEASE PM me!  I got it from Jo-Ann's at the end of last year or the beginning of this year!

I'd love ya forever!!!
