Gifts and eye candi

A friend of mine was in Kuala Lumpur for business purposes.
My husband asked her to bring him back one batik for me.

I received 3 from my hubby and one from my friend. What a great surprise !!!
They are stunning.
The first one I received is in traditionel cotton batik. All the others are in cotton satin.
Gorgous !!!

now some pictures for the eye candy ;)

here are they !

I think I'll make a pallazo pant out of this one.
So pop ! Would'nt it be nice.
What do you think ?
So soft and falling nicely.

A skirt ? with a draping ? I'll see 💝

this one is from Valérie. I'll make a blouse out of it. 
Already habe biais and the pattern, hoho ! next project !

The traditional one, I'll make a simple dress from it, But I'lll try to place the different patterns to create a graphic effect

We also received spices ...

I'm so grateful!!!
Thank you thierry !So many thanks Valérie. I love you 💕

Sorry for the pictures, it was really windy when I took them.

where is Evinrude ? A clew ???

Just look in the center of the top in the lower part !!!

creating a new pattern from an existing to small dress

whaaaouw !
A real challeng !
Creating a new pattern from an existing dress... Yes, it was 2 or 3 sizes smaller that what I am !
First, taking pictures to know how it was constructed.

Twice, drawing on paper, and optimizing the pattern to a possible size !

Third, Böbe came in the game to drape it on her body 😉

Redrawing it after trials...
Retracing on paper with new mesearuments...
Oh my GOD !!!

Trials after trials ... Böbe is not safe enough ! I have to put it on and try.
Trying after tryings ...
A dress is taking form.
No pictures taken :'(
So sad, never mind.
