Animal Instinct

It seems as though leopard print is everywhere at the moment. I really like this print because it gives off such a young, fun, sexy vibe.

I used McCalls (Laura Ashley) pattern 5972 to make this adorable collared dress. I shortened the hem, brought the neckline in and added the collar and cap sleeves. I've used this pattern a few times before and its nice and simple, a good starting point if you want to customise it into your own style, but like me, don't know how to draft patterns from scratch.

I was really pleased with the result, I love how the collar and sleeves are fairly stiff and structured, I think it makes the dress kind of preppy.
