being that my company is called Kittycat Corsets, i thought it was high time i got in and made a kittycat dress.

i've had this fabric sitting around for nearly 2 years and finally went through and cleared out my wardrobe which left me thinking. damn, i need new clothes.

so this is what i made for myself. - the Justyna Dress






i'm still iffy about the pattern, i had to take it in a bunch (too much ease in it i think) and i love love love the skirt part (actually made a skirt out of it as well - no pics yet)

but yeah, what do you think, Kittycat worthy?

Cutest dress ever! I love cats, too =D
I love the cut of the dress, it's so simple and looks really great! The contrast between the fabrics is great, too!

I like it a lot!  I think the design would work well even more fitted than you have it, but it certainly works as it is.

yeah thats what i was thinking.


from the original pattern i added even more curve through the waist line and took it in diagonally along the zipper, after putting in the original darts and it's still vaugely sackish.   i think the pattern was a bit of a bomb lol.
