I love this garment ensemble. It is an elegant, comfortable, and functional duster, dress, and pant pattern combination. I have not made the pants, but the dress and jacket are so wonderful and the fit is spot-on!
This Fashion Duo is for the Duster and our Jersey Knit. If you are looking for the version of the duster made from our Batik Rayon - Click here to jump to that item instead.
I'm wearing a long duster in the Medora Flora Motif in the shade of Valentine Pink. I love this jacket!! It's so comfortable and I can wear it with anything and anywhere. Our dear friend Kris and her Daughter are wearing this same pattern. Syd is wearing our Jersey Knit in the Phoenix motif in the shade Tuxedo Brass. Her jacket is long and with her height and black boots - she is ready! Kris is wearing our Batik Rayon in the Animal Skin motif in the shade Tuxedo Brass. Both jackets are so perfect for each of them.
