To get the show started I decides that Missoni deserved some attention. The story of Missoni's now-legendary patterned knits of zigzags, waves, and stripes began in 1948 when founders Rosita and Ottavio (Tai) met. The first collection under the Missoni label in Milan was presented in 1958. Missoni reached the peak of its influence in the fashion world in the early 1970s. When you see these stripes it screams Missoni!
These prints are on clearance at FabricMart so you better get yours now! Black & White and the Orange stripe Missoni like print. [New arrival options HERE!] Keep your eye out for this orange print!
I wanted to make a duster that my daughter could wear with jeans and a chunky heel. For this project I used my Margo Blouse by Blue Dot Patterns. This pheasant blouse screams 70's. I added 12 inches in length to the blouse along with a a bottom ruffle that touches the floor. I also opened the front under the yoke and added 3 inches to the sleeve length and about 6 more inches to the width. This Duster has the look that I was going for and you could also pull off a Boho look with this same duster. The cool thing about this fabric is that you can use the salvage edge of this fabric as your hem, I was able to use the salvage for my sleeves and my ruffle at the bottom of the duster.
This is a quick easy solution to dress up jeans and a t-shirt!
I used a zig-zag stitch to sew this knit fabric and my serger to finish it off.
