Indonesian Batik Shirt

Not made any clothes for a long time, since my kids were little, they are now in their thirties.  Recently bought myself a desperately needed new machine and a few patterns and some material in the sales after Christmas.  This shirt is made from Indonesian Batik cotton, ooh how I love sewing with this material, it is light, doesn't make bulky underarm seams, doesn't move when you sew it and comes in such pretty colours.  I am really please with the end result and this pattern also includes a mid calf dress in the same style and some day I will get round to making it too.  By the way this piece of material cost me $1 at Walmart, it was a remnant exactly one and three quarter yards long, perfect.
