Lagenlook Moroccan Cotton Cocoon Palms Batwing Duster
Okay gals- here is yet another show-stopping design. It
looks like the pyramid of Giza, a Flapper's dream, and a plus-size
duster extraorinaire. It's hand woven and hand dyed in Morocco Cotton
susti (susdi) cotton-rayon blend that feels as luxurious as cashmere. It looks wonderful on all sizes but also on plus size goddess gals curvy figures. The Batwing duster was made popular in the roaring twenties flapper style.
Design details; Long cascade front collar, batwing sleeves
that taper towards the wrists, the design looks like a cocoon, a bit
longer on the sides. The back is a masterpiece of craftsmanship. Nobody
does this kind of sewing anymore. A deep triangular trapunto stitching
on triangular back yoke adds the finishing touches to this lovely
* Trapunto stitching (Italian for
"to embroider"), also called stuffed technique, is a quilting technique
that is quite decorative in that it utilizes at least two layers, which
is padded from the underside. This produces a raised surface on the
fabric. This style originated in Italy in fourteenth or the sixteenth
century. Topstitching enhances a fabric's design and strengthens seams.
Every stitch must be accurately done by a machine or by hand.
