This was the Butterfly inspired Avant Garde Challenge.
To add to that, we moved and EVERYTHING is in a box. Fair enough. I had a “make it work” challenge and, surprisingly, the dress really hit the mark! (in my humble opinion.)
Let’s start the show.
The fabric is inspired by the spots on the butterfly that are supposed to look like eyes. I liked the “rustic polkadot” feel of this pattern.
I pulled the bright fabric in and did some Barbie size piping. : )
Here is the gown “walking”. It’s half open on the left and all the way open on the right. It is dramatic, and the color is rich.
