Bea named this dress herself. We watch Cat in the Hat quite a lot at the moment and as soon as she saw the dress she said 'my cat in the hat dress!' I can kind of see why...
Please excuse the crazed expression in this photo - its what you get when you ask for a smile. And excuse the bluriness - I was laughing at the expression.
I made this little dress for Bea to wear for a wedding following the Junebug dress tutorial from Craftiness Is Not Optional.
I fell in love with the button detailing on the front and simple shape. I decided to make mine sleeveless as I thought with the stripes it would be a bit much so I had to construct my bodice differently from how she describes.
The tutorial was easy to follow and I'm really pleased with the way it came out, even if I couldn't get the model to cooperate!
