1970s Iconic Knit Missoni Jumpsuit

When I acquired this I though it was an over-sized day dress but when I went to put it onto the mannequin realized that is actually a half skirted, half shorted playsuit! There are actually legs built into it making it the perfect thing for the summer months! Made of a lightweight but chunky knot wool nylon mix this is an early, incredible Missoni piece! I love the easy, slouchy over-0sized feel of it! Everything is made to slouch and be cozy. Huge pockets sit on each hip and wooden buttons close the front. The original belt is made of braided cord in a multitude of colors and has a huge wooden button as its buckle! Amazing and in excellent condition!

Unlined and closes with the front buttons. The inner legs are half shorts (at the front) and half skirt (the back). Wood buttons and wood buckle on the slip belt.
