Kate Spade number that I've been drooling over from afar!
Do you like how I can make anything about dresses, including football?
Here's Emma in it (with special thanks to WWEPW for alerting me to this!):
I saw this dress in the window of the Kate Spade shop on 20th Street while walking to dinner with Jeff and my brother, Bryan. I was transfixed and made them both stop so I could ogle it for a while. Those roses! Those cute little raglan sleeves! It was about 9 degrees out, and the fellows wanted to, you know, not be hanging around on the freezing sidewalk.
"You can make that," Jeff asserted, in a get-me-the-hell-out-of-here tone.
I tried to explain that it wasn't about the style, but the print. Oh, the print! It has a sort of dreamy, watercolor texture. Yet! The roses are flocked, so I assume they have a velvet-y texture.
Anyway, I was soon almost completely abandoned on a frigid, desolate street corner, so I moved along with the guys. But I just can't stop thinking about this dress! I love anything with roses, and I'm actually somewhat decent at drawing them. I wonder if this effect could be acheived on some silk shantung with the help of a silk paint like Dye-na-flow and some salt?
Anyway. Yay for football!
