Emilio Pucci was a 1950-60’s Florentine Italian designer, a favorite of Marilyn Monroe and also worn by Lauren Bacall, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and Sophia Loren, and Madonna in the 90’s. He was best known for his wild geometric, colorful fabrics, as well as the fashion transition from couture to ready-to-wear.

Fabric:  Polyester found on the ASGIE give-away table

Pattern: Self-drafted bodice block, Seamwork.com Willis pdf pattern details. Designed out from the sloper using a grown-on placket to maintain continuity of the pattern.

Covered Buttons: Like Pucci, covered buttons match the blouse.  Pictured on the right is the front button placket showing the pattern matching and covered buttons.
