When I first bought the fabric for this dress, I didn’t have a clue on what I’d make out of it. I had spent hours looking for inspiration but my drawing page was blank. I even went on the internet, googled some fabulous BUTTERFLY PRINT DRESS dress lookalikes but I didn’t want to duplicate what was already there and altering a design wasn’t an option. So I decided to take my pencil and paper and head out to the fabric shop and see what I could find and get inspired. There was a lot of fabric at the shop and the ideas started flowing in. I’d pick one item and a whole outfit would pop in my mind. I would shift my eyes slightly and be met with the most glamorous textile and immediately change what was in my head.
Frustrated because I couldn’t buy the entire shop, I sat down on the floor in-between one of the isles, closed my eyes and took a deep breath. Luckily it was a Sunday so not many people were in the shop. Then I opened my eyes and right in front of me was a very beautiful light chiffon fabric with butterfly prints and pastel colours.
I took the roll and went for a cutting, still no idea of what to make with it I got home, stared at it for a couple more hours before deciding on producing a long summer dress created in my head. Inspired by butterflies and pastels and honored to be a woman, I can wear these colours and they will accentuate my femininity. The dress flows with such grace it makes me feel like royalty. I can dress this dress down with sandals or glam it up with nude heels and some fine jewels with a nude or pink pastel bag.
We took these BUTTERFLY PRINT DRESS images at Proactive Guest House in Pretoria East right after a long day at work. I’m grateful I get to travel with my friends and I’m never alone, friendship is very important to me, trust, fun and honesty. I look at these images and I get butterflies in my stomach; the beautiful background and of course the beautiful dress. Its moments like these I feel blessed. We all have our talents and I’m hoping you are using yours to the best of your ability. Allow your creativity to possess you and make history. Find the talents within you and allow them to shine.
