Description

I made this for a Kids production where I was “Miss Butterfly” who looked after her garden. It was more of a conceptual costume. During the actual performances I would wear more accessories and bright orange circles on my cheeks.
It was an overnight job because I was busy on clinical placement in Sydney. I didn’t properly fit it to myself and left out the boning to make it simpler.

I did a combo of the bodice from A, Skirt from C, and hem height of my own decision. I thought it was cute to be that old fashioned mid-calf length :)

For this dress I had wanted to add the flowers down the bodice but I didn’t have the time and have since looked over a better technique by Gaviccaabri

      :) thank you,
      it is made for a costume but i took most of the pictures of the dress cause i like it in general :) not sure if it will get much practical use (orange & black satin..) so ill make more appropriate version.
