Cat Fancy: Kittens in Paradise

A few weeks ago I went to an afternoon barbecue and was overcome with jealousy when I spotted this amazing dress on my friend Diana. This beauty actually blows my mind; kittens playing/screaming in an island paradise? Genius! I offered her a very pretty penny for it but she politely declined. Oh well, I guess I'll just need to become a textile designer so I can make amazing prints like these (Joanna are you out there?).





Just to clarify the kittens are not silk-screened on, they are a part of the print and pop up in a few other locations on the back of the dress. I just can't believe that this fabric ended up on a cute day dress, rather than a muu-muu the size of Texas. Although I guess it would be cool to find this fabric made into a giant muu-muu because you could maybe transform it into a dress, purse and scarf. Wow. Thrift store find of the year!

I actually have a Cat print dress. Sleeveless with a huge funnel collar. It looks like it's handmade.

Here's the print.
