1980s Unusual Missoni "Layered" Sweater Dress

This sweater dress from Missoni is so unusual and I love it! It looks at first glance to be some kind of odd one shouldered sweater layered over another sweater. This is however an illusion as it is really all one piece! A cable wool with what I think is a touch of mohair woven through it has been done in a dusky blue and a purple. The two colors work fabulously together and are separated by a chunky edging. It is that perfect "Flash Dance" over-sized feel with a loose fitting, over-sized top that slims into a straight cut skirt. Comfy and cozy to wear! Excellent condition

Unlined and slips on to wear. Meant to be worn over-sized.

Shoulders: no defined seam
Bust: approx 21" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: approx 18" flat across from side seam to side seam
