Inspired by the fabulous Vlisco exhibit I recently attended, I, of course, had to go order some fabric from Vlisco. This is the second of the two sundresses I made.
I used six yards of Java fabric. When the fabric arrived, it had a rather plasticky coating, which thankfully came off when I ran it through the washing machine. Vlisco seems to have sold out of the exact fabric I ordered, but has the same print in different colorways. It was unproblematic to work with, and sewed up just like any other batik.
The pattern I used was Vogue 2903, a 1950's evening dress. It eats fabric (six yards!), but I absolutely love the lines of this dress.
Anyway, it is an awesome dress, and so fun to wear. I could totally see myself making this pattern again, either as an evening dress, or in a more subdued solid color as a day dress.
