Catherine in OZ: Yellow colorblock dress, fit for a Duchess

Timely, to say the least.

Yes, she wore it only a couple of days ago and they already got the pattern out!

Here's the Duchess in the real-life version.

I'm impressed on the turnaround time. It's a really nice dress, too.

I wonder if they'll do any other patterns inspired by Catherine's trip. Everyone on the internet was going nuts over that red coat that she wore in New Zealand; I had that pegged as a likely knockoff for StyleArc.

Lovely and contemporary dress! She looks great in everything, just like Princess Diana did.

It's a pretty simple dress, they only had to add a couple of seams for the color blocking. Doing a coat would probably be a lot more work.

I LOVE her red coat. I have been looking for a pattern for which I can use some lovely red wool from my stash. I'll keep my fingers crossed!
