I was thrilled to learn that ModCloth was holding another round of "Make the Cut" design contest. The challenge was to design one piece that is 1960s inspired, made with a geometric bead-like floral print, 100% cotton fabric for the winter season.
The contest is currently running! And you can vote for me
Left: Palazzo Pant Right: Illusion top yoke
I designed a mini mod collection of 6 looks. The fabric sample swatch does not show a whole yard of fabric, but only one section of the repeating pattern. I knew it would give a slightly purple color from afar. I thought that yellow and orange would be pretty accent colors and very 60s.
Left: Illusion undershirt, pinned on look of overalls Right: rounded color block top stitched
When I thought of the women wearing the collection, the Mad Men characters Peggy and Rachel really came to mind.
Left: One piece pleated skirt and turtleneck top zip-up Left: Lace trim details, large collar
It was really groovy stepping into the sixties for this challenge, and I would love your support! <3
