I’ve been wanting to do a butterfly project since I taped last year’s calendar butterflies to my ceiling. This is a two-piece dress with pencil skirt and halter top. The reason I made it two-piece is because I think I will get more wear out of the pieces separately. I designed the pieces myself out of a bedsheet, so there was a lot of trial and error involved.
I would appreciate any tips for how to alter this so that I don’t get BELLY showing when wearing as a dress. Would it be too much to wear the scarf as a sash? I am afraid to mess anything up but I don’t think a woman my age needs to show her fish-white belly.
I dyed an old sateen jacquard bedsheet orange. Polyester chiffon from Joann, 2.50 per yard.
