I got the dress at Lennor Boutique at Plaza Indonesia with my friend Inti from this previous post. My Mom complained when I showed it to her, because she is not fond of printed batik, claiming it's "batik-batikan" alias not a "real" batik. However, after scrutinizing the stitches, the details, etc. she said that it has a fine workmanship. Hurray!!
This dress is a size Large. I should have gone with Medium, but if I did, the dress would be too short on me. I don't mind wearing short skirts or dresses once in a while, but not TOO short! The rule is: if I cannot move or sit comfortably in it without fear that I might accidentally show anything that is not supposed to be shown, then it's too short.
I'm wearing the dress for Church this Saturday evening, and received various comments, from "Wow, that batik dress is gorgeous!" to "You look like you're wearing a potato sack!" to "Is that a nightgown, you know, to sleep in?". Ouch! Well, cannot please everyone.

The delicious marinated lamb shank with meat gravy and lots and lots of garlic and red onion bulbs.
Me and my favorite Anatolia dish: meftune lamb shank.
Can I finish it all by myself? Yes, I can!
