A simple yet elegant handmade dress, hand painted on pure white silk for a touch of luxury. Perfect for the beach during a destination beach wedding! The silk is sheer deliciousness on your skin, lets the breeze through as well as dries in the blink of an eye if it gets wet.

Tada!! Check out this style of dress in greater detail on my facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.256353561118807.64864.164616236959207&type=1

This is imported white satin silk. Using traditional batik techniques, wax is poured on the silk using a little bronze spout in the "splash" shapes, then the silk is colored in by hand.

Only the finest German dyes are used to ensure color fastness and vibrancy.

After drying, the colored silk piece is placed in textile fixer, then double boiled to remove the wax as well as test for color bleeding. The silk is then ironed to test for durability and to keep the colors on!

Keeping the background white is especially difficult as being extremely careful still does not stop colors from seeping on to the background sometimes! (sigh!)

Once satisfactory, the finished batik hand painted silk piece is tailored into this darling strapless maxi dress!

High quality rubber thread (made in England) is sewn across the top to create the stretchy bust and the bottom of the dress is hemmed.

This piece will take three weeks to paint and sew.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

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
