A handpainted and hand dyed pink butterfly top in sheer chiffon silk! This long sleeved tunic called "Hibiscus Garden", carries a whimsical oriental design of an Asian rock garden full of beautiful hibiscuses in bloom!

Made with traditional Batik techniques as done in Borneo. The patterns are brushed onto the silk with wax using first a wide brush, then a traditional Tjanting or Canting (a tiny copper spout on a little wooden handle) to create the finer flowery shapes. It is then painted over by hand with a background of bright, deep pink, with black and lilac accents.

Once the fabric is completed, it is then cut and sewn into this cute little tunic top with ruffly, butterfly wing sleeves! Totally eye-catching and breath-taking!!!

After drying, all my batiks are set with textile fixer, then double boiled and ironed to ensure color steadfastness and long-term durability.

Each piece takes anywhere from 6 hours to 3 days of work. Whew!!! x_X

To give your Silk Batik a long and happy life, please look after it carefully with these tips and hints and a bit of common sense:

- Do not machine wash or tumble dry.
- Use cold water rather than warm or hot.
- Silk is a natural fibre like hair, as such you may find that a little shampoo will be gentler and give your batik a lustrous, shiny glow as opposed to using harsh detergents.
- NEVER EVER BLEACH!!!! Good gracious!!! 0_o

I have used a very sheer and delicate Chiffon Silk for this piece. The lightest and most fragile of all the silks. While extremely beautiful, feminine, sensual and luxurious, it is imperative to take extra, special care of such a delicate piece!



In order to ensure a proper fit, please compare size given here to a garment you already own and can wear well. Don`t forget to give yourself a little breathing room or some space for a little dessert! :D

Maximum Size (APPROXIMATE):
Shoulders - Free size
Bust - 100cm / 39.5"
Waist - 97cm / 38"
Hips - 120cm / 47"

This butterfly top is nice and loose fitting but can be tightened as much as you like by pulling on the cords (cords?? Tightening string thingies! You can see them in the fourth picture! :D) which can then be tied inside the top or left undone.

Note: Model pictured is approximately 5`5" and 160lbs.

Custom orders may take up to 2 - 3 weeks to be completed from time of order as a great amount of work goes into each of these OOAK tunics, starting from hand painting the fabric, to measuring it out, cutting it up then sewing it to perfection!
