With Love from Porto Rockabilly Dress

Posted on

Porto is a coastal city in northwest Portugal known for its stately bridges and Port wine production. In the medieval Ribeira (riverside) district, narrow cobbled streets wind past merchants’ houses and cafes.  Some of the most ubiquitous and distinctive decorative mediums in Portugal are the Azulejo tiles that can be found in both the grandest churches and the humblest houses.  Most common colors are blue, white, and yellow.  This print from Cotton & Steel is a depiction of Azulejo tiles representing the friendly and contented cats that doze along the shore, hoping for fish.  The back ground is navy blue, while the cats are in white decorated with large blooms in sea blue and navy.  The sweetheart bodice has a pleated band that stretches under the bust and over the shoulders as straps.  The full skirt is cool and airy, perfect for an evening stroll along the river.
