A few weeks ago the charming Lizzy House thru down the gauntlet and started a contest for her new line of fabric Catnap. I had been debating making a dress out of one of these beautiful prints but had talked myself out of it. This contest was just the push I needed to make a dress with silly cats all over it! I used the pattern Macaron by Colette. I did a few tweaks. I wanted the pockets to be in the front so I could use them while I rode my bike but i didn't want all the pleats to interrupt or hid any of the sweet kitties so I gathered the skirt instead. I also had a heck of the time cutting out the bodice, I wanted to make sure that the cats weren't folded up into the Darts. That takes a lot of brain power when there 4 of them on the front bodice alone. t think this is a much more wearable version of the macaron, simply because of the lack of gathers.
