This is such an amazing dress, at first glance an abstract splotchy print in shades of dark chocolate, it turns out on closer inspection to be a series of cat faces, their noses and eyes picked out in tiny black sequins. Its in the softest silk (with 5% Lycra) that's lined with plain black silk, and, as usual with Maria, it's a clever cut, drop shouldered, and tapered. It's a size 10, but would fit smaller and probably bigger too, but watch that taper.
Measurements: Length 40", Bust (up to) 52", hip (up to) 42"
STORY: I have so very much Maria because of a persuasive friend in her atelier, and I wear her pieces almost all the time. But a few never get pulled for reasons I don't fully understand. This is gorgeous... But not on me. Never worn!
