Cheetah Frocks Rock!



I love this dress!
 
Vogue 1315 by Rebecca Taylor. Fun to make...easy to wear...lots of design detail setting it apart from the everyday, such as double layered, raw edged neckline:
 


Front pleats on skirt forming the other side of pockets, more easily shown here on the line drawing:


 
And such a cute detail on the garment itself:
 


 
Also cute unbelted:



 
And from the back:


 
 
In closing, I pay homage to CocosLoft who was my inspiration for this dress...so much so that I even used the same fabric! Thank you, Coco. Copy cat? No, I'm thinking copy cheetah.

  6. Ooh...looks like one of those very-comfortable-but-always-chic dresses that you just pull on and look put-together. Love the matching belt..and yellow tights.

  12. Absolutely worthy of copying but who would know? Funny how the same pattern looks different on people!
    You wear animal prints better than anyone I know! (virtually or otherwise)
