Fashion Plate: Hooked on a Feline

This week's Fashion Plate is based on ModCloth's Hooked on a Feline dress.  The fabric is Packed Cats by Timeless Treasures.  If you are a dog-lover, they have you covered too.  My pattern selection is Butterick 6016.  This pattern is really quite the stretch, however.  The bodice of the ModCloth dress is a basic one.  It simply has diagonal bust darts, vertical darts on the v-back, and a gathered skirt cut on the bias.  Add cap sleeves and some facings and you are done.  Simple.  The pattern I linked to would require you to change out the skirt, add cap sleeves, and adjust the bodice front to omit the center seam allowance and cut that piece on the fold.
