When Target announced the impending arrival of their Missoni line I didn't get excited. Not because I don't shop at Target: I do. And not because I don't like Missoni designs, because I adore them. ADORE! But I didn't get excited because I made a conscious commitment earlier this year to use the dollars that I spend on clothing to support Indie businesses.
I blogged about this in my post supporting the Red Velvet Spring/Summer line, which I continued by my purchase of two pieces from the Autumn/Winter line. I will share my purchases in future posts, but in the meantime, give them a visit!

I don't want to copy it, but it is a good starting point as I contemplate sewing patterns.
If you have any ideas for my dress, I would love, love to hear them!
