The Cat-tastic dress was inspired by our rescue cat and our granddaughters' love of soft, stretchy, fun clothes to wear. This applique design features ruffle-trimmed sleeves, a dropped waist, and a skater-style skirt that is meant to hug the hips and flare out at the hem. (A gathered skirt/sleeve ruffle option is offered as well.) This style dress fits best when made of a slightly stretchy fabric. And, because it is a “hoodie” designed for cooler temperatures, a variety of standard fleece or sweatshirt fleece fabrics work well. It is also fun to experiment with the newer terry knits and the sweater fleece prints.
The design calls for a hook and loop closure, but you might want to experiment with snaps, buttons, or a zipper.
This outfit is designed to fit 13-14.5" dolls such as WellieWishers™, Hearts for Hearts Girls® and Corolle® les Cheries.
