Butterfly paper dress by Samwakenz Butterfly paper dress by Samwakenz
My wearable art, changed from my original dress.
Skirt is completely made of paper -layered, cut, and sewn to the stretch fabric bodice I created; each butterfly on the dress is hand made by me using maps that I then stained with tea, cut into different butterfly silhouettes and then I used black marker and sequin thread to finish it off :)

Here it is on a figure/model

It's so pretty! I like how you added the more dimensional butterflies on top to the butterfly print.

Thanks so much! I actually had them on flat at first and then decided to bend their wings to give them more of a 'just landed look' :D
