Springtime Butterflies and Flowers


With Spring just around the corner (ahem, weather gods did you hear that - please wake up and take note!), I decided to make a lovely and light top for a friend's 3 year old, in anticipation of all the warm sunny days that are surely in store for us here in London.

I bought this beautiful fabric at the Paris show Aiguille en Fete and have been wanting to make something with it ever since.


A store bought pair (on sale!) of leggings which I ruched down the sides and added 3 spring time Incomparable buttons to match the Incomparable butterfly buttons on the top.


Since I don't have the model to pose for lovely pics I have tried hundreds of various combinations to try and take a great shot of the outfit...but this was the best I could do!
I have new respect for shop window dressers. How do they make everything look so appealing?!

Has Spring arrived for you yet?
