ridiculous print jj

Added Mar 7, 2012

by mokosha

Beograd, Serbia






when i first saw this fabric
i knew i must have it
it’s the most ridiculous fabric i ever saw
it has pink flamingos
it has palm leaves
it has philodendron leaves
it’s navy
it’s so damn insane that i’m in love with it
to make it a bit more insane
i added some white/navy stripped cotton
skirt is my design
i posted it here earlier
jj was a bit more time consuming
than i expected it to be
(but maybe that’s fault of the fabric i choose
really thin rayon, highly opinionated one
we had quite a few fights along the way)
although i adore ruffles
i think this blouse is ridiculous enough even without them
(and.. there was not enough fabric)
see more pics on my blog

Material Notes

1,2 m rayon, scraps of stripped cotton fabric, interfacing, 6 buttons, thread




Garment Type
Cotton, Rayon

    You should really call yourself MOKOSHA – that name would suit the woman who wears these bright clashing prints….Ivana implies some sort of sensibility……..;) lol

    Love that outfit. I think fashion must be playful, there are so much things in life that are boring so why not wear ridiculous print sometimes and have fun with. Great work!!

      lol..than i’m one very brave lady, ‘cause i dress this way all the time.. this skirt is one of my all time favorites, i wear it a lot (it got me lots of compliments, also).. i do get some strange looks sometimes, but i’m ok with that.. for me, it’s important that i feel great in what i’m wearing, if i would have to wear dark wash jeans and t-shirt i would probably be in suicidal mood

      hi no wonder you are named Mokosha…suits a quirky and very different person….take a picture when you wear that in town….also do you sell your stuff or you just make to wear yourself! :)

      lol.. no, my name is not mokosha, my name is ivana.. mokosha is name of my blog and name of my small clothing line.. yes, i do sell my clothes (not too often though, ’cause i spend more than half year away from my home and my sewing machine, working as an archaeologist).. btw, these pictures are shoot in town (i live in a big city, and have no car, so i have to shoot my pics in town), but i like to find some backyard or little park or tree to use it as a background, instead of buildings

      inace, nisam prvo ni planirala prugice.. nego sam nesto zajebala kragnu, a nisam imala vise materijala sa flamingosima, pa sam resila da ubacim prugice.. i sad mi se ovako mnogo vise svidja nego originalna ideja

      thanks.. strikes are the result of my previous accidental destroying of collar (with flamingos).. i run out of fabric and had to go creative :)

    Totally gorgeous. Not that that’s anything unusual when it’s coming from your sewing room!

    ha ha, ladno ne verujem! Sećam se te viskoze, i sama sam se za nju zalepila pre par nedelja ali tadašnji budžet mi je dozvoljavao samo jedan komad :( odlučila sam se za neku viskozu sa narandžastim ptičicama, ali sada mi je žao što nisam pokupila i flamingose. Mislim realno, mogla sam da izdržim bez ručka par dana – vredelo bi. Super ti je kombinacija.

      ehehe znaci nisam jedina koja se zbog materijala odrice rucka.. ja sam razvila vestinu da zivim bez para danima, nedeljama ponekad..
      a sigurna sam da su i te narandzaste pticice super :) pa nemas za cim da zalis (pogotovo sto je ovaj materijal osetljiv i tanak kao paucina)
