The Kendra Shirt Dress combines a 1950’s shirt dress shape with a hand-finished batik palm leaf print. We love the button-up front, longer length, relaxed collar and, pretty tie waist. This pink and green Batik palm design was created in our seaside studio, so you won’t find it on garments made by anyone else.Anna is 5’9" and is wearing a size 12100% ViscoseNeck to hem length for a size 12: 113cmMachine washable (delicate)Functional button frontMatching tie beltBatik ‘wax resist’ printWhat is Batik?Batik is a technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to cloth. Batik is made by printing the wax design onto fabric using a copper stamp called a cap. The applied wax design resists dyes and therefore allows the artisan to colour selectively by soaking the cloth in one colour, removing the wax with boiling water, and repeating if multiple colours are desired. Due to the artisan nature of this process every Batik printed item differs slightly, making it unique and extra special.
