So, I toyed with some fabrics, and some styles, and decided she was not to wear a dress! It looked totally weird!! She is a tomboy (tomcat??) and so needed shorts of some kind.
Looked at denim, but it didn't work with the colour of the cat, but found some corduroy in the same range. Was going to bind it, but decided to fully line it instead. This made the finishing so much easier!
I added a pocket and a buttonhole for her tail to poke out, and left it a little on the large side. There is still something missing, perhaps a scarf or something?? For now, I'm calling her finished.....
UPDATED : I've added a bell around her neck! Now, she's done!!
