Another butterfly inspiration! I'm loving making these scrappy mosaic patchwork twirl skirts while studying different butterfly species. I upcycle thrift store clothing in natural fibers and use scraps from other projects to free form stitch swirling swaths, I never make a pattern for these so each really is one of a kind. This lovely has a few sections of a golden metallic silk knit for the essential shimmer as well as some black and white tiger/leopard print knit. The waist is easy elastic, put in to sit smoothly with no gathers. The hem line is slightly asymmetrical.
This would be great for any summer play day or garden party or be an amazing part of a fairy costume for a summer festival for a man or woman.
Made to order in your size. Simply send your waist measurement along with the order.
I will make and ship your custom skirt within 10 days of payment.
The skirt pictured measures:
waist 32" (unstretched elastic)
length 16"- 18"
sweep 90"

If you want a skirt that is longer please send me a convo and I'll do a special listing with a proportionally higher price.
