The pattern for Kat strapless dress by Grainline Studio was a birthday gift from my friends.. Better said, it was only one of three parts of the surprise, and the best one :) Kat dress was one of the first indie patterns that I loved, and still is very high on my list.. I’m a big fan of strapless dresses.. With this one I liked the lines that different fabrics make.. Pure magic.. I also loved the skirt with only couple of pleats and high-low waistline.. The design is simple and clean..
This was my first time using this pattern and I wanted to make a wearable muslin.. Last winter I bought 4 or 5 pieces of very lightweight cotton from the remnant bin.. I didn’t like much the color, too pale for my taste, but the pineapple print and super low price were a big plus.. In my fabric stash I have found green lining that perfectly goes with pineapples.. Beside the lining, there was no other fabric to go with the main fabric.. That’s why I decided to use neon green piping for all the horizontal lines instead of combining different fabrics..
