I have always been attracted by crazy prints and when I found this strange geometric multicoloured cotton I just could not resist it. The bodice is quite basic, it comes from the Italian mazagine “La mia boutique”. I opted for a circle skirt in order to give the print the right emphasis. When my mother saw the dress she said it looked like a butterfly, here the name of my project.
