The Kat Dress could have been called the "Saturday in Brooklyn Dress" since that's when and where it's most in its element (just add a straw bag), but I named it the Kat Dress because it's basically the 2.0 version of FW19's Catherine Dress. After wearing the Catherine on repeat last year, I realized the dress was about 95% what I wanted it to be (the deep V-neck, high waistline, and midi length were all so flattering!), but there were a few things regarding the shape and placement of the buttonholes that bugged me enough to come out with a version 2.0. After some tinkering around, I'm happy to report that version 2.0 is officially the dress of my dreams: constructed out of a wispy dove gray cotton georgette, the Kat is everything the Catherine was (and a little bit more).

This dress is made of made of cotton georgette woven in Japan. Lightweight, sheer, and with a characteristic dry hand and subtle crunch, this fabric is a bit more rustic than a classic silk georgette but no less lovely. It is dyed a a pale dove gray.
The dress is self-lined with the same cotton georgette.
