I had this M. Missoni maxi dress pinned for a while, in two color variations and I knew I'd be recreating this look.
M. Missoni Zigzag Maxi - $795 (yikes!)
I decided to pull out my Mission Maxi pattern because I really love the racerback style of the top and also that the pattern gives you a dress with waist shaping. It was an easy as punch modification: I just separated the top from the bottom 9" from the underarm and allowed for a seam allowance. I also lined the bottom portion because the zigzag fabric is pretty transparent.
I used a black ponte knit from my stash and the zigzag fabric is from Jo-Ann's and a lightweight poly knit for the lining. Sidenote: I was in TJ Maxx in the Runway section and noticed that silk crepe maxis were lined with a lightweight poly knit. I guess this is the fabric trend... which is new to me.Vogue 8721; dress: Jamie Christina's Mission Maxi; wedges: Jessica Simpson; belt: Calvin Klein (old); purse: Urban Expressions.
