Kitty Couture

I designed and made this dress for my latest kitten doll. I went way overboard altering the outer and inner bodice pieces to give a faux piping effect around the neck and armholes. In reality, the thin line of turquoise fabric that shows is about 1/16 of an inch wide! A matching band of turquoise is set in along the bottom hem too, with a row of light blue Rick Rack anchoring it in place.

I hand stitched a blue ribbon at the waistline and tacked on a matching bow. I find the dress captivating all by itself and its small size makes it even cuter.
