simplycheap 's Thoughts:

In terms of wearing batik, I like to keep the cut of cloth simple, and since what’s available and affordable on the market is usually over-designed, I like to have my batik made by a tailor, since my skill in sewing has not reached that level yet. And I try to find a way to make it look young, with this denim jacket, for instance.

Anyways, I fall in love with the designs of Dries van Noten S/S 2010 collection , especially the way the designer incorporates batik and ikat in the clothes. I’ve never thought that batik can reach that level of freshness, coolness and edginess.

Gorgeous outfit. I know you've heard this 20.000 times but are you able to make one again? I mean for me. How much would it cost me? I don't mind a different fabric, i just love the shape soo much.

I have actually, learned by myself....operating it is not so hard but making patterns and cutting...well THOSE are for me hahaha....you should try thogh, because it's very fulfilling once you finished your first piece of clothes
