You know it just occurred to me that I have not one but two insect projects this year, the butterfly and bee gowns. Perhaps I should round out the year with an inch worm, ladybug or moth dress! *hee hee*
Anyway… I found a nice little belt at Target this week that solved the $9.95 necklace and Mr. Butterfly not matching issue. The sash is aquamarine silk chiffon, all the edges are finished and it was on clearance for $2.39. *hugs receipt* I love sales!
I like it a lot better than the sky blue chiffon option. The sky blue seemed to accentuate the differences between the necklace and bead colors. The belt beads them and makes them work suddenly, better in person than in the pics of course. :> I need to resign myself to the fact this gown is never going to photograph well. *sigh* The belt also makes the whole outfit *pop* which is fun. Besides I love aquamarine, it’s one of my favorite colors. So back into the fabric stash the sky blue goes…
The belt is covered in flat sequins on one side so I need to take those off. I’ll save them for some future project. One day 10 years from now they will turn out to be the perfect thing you know. :>
