Me Wanna Be Banana
Last week, I came upon this post showing Princesse Kate in this dress:
The dress was immediately saved in my Evernote “Inspiration” folder, the equivalent of the Pinterest board of most. Well, I was not the only one who liked the dress. Burdastyle published a post on how to alter some of their patterns to achieve the banana look. But best, StyleArc released a pattern for this very dress a couple of days later, the Catherine dress. Hmm… I’ve been itching to order from StyleArc for eons now. I’ve featured them a couples of times in my Pattern Sightings series, as early as 2011, and again in 2012. The thing that keeps me from diving in is the fact that the shipping fees from down under to Wester Europe are really high, coupled to the fact that their pattern are single-sized. That’s a high-risk buy, especially for a dress pattern where I sometimes go over three sizes in multi-sized pattern. I’m putting this pattern on my StyleArc wishlist, though, that’s for sure.
