I recently acquired the gorgeous vintage dress, which appears to be handmade (looks like the early 1940s?). There are many reasons I love this dress, but first among them is the beautiful, bright, silky butterfly fabric.
Excuse the wrinkles, it had just had a bath.
So now I’m a bit obsessed with butterfly fabrics, especially in silk. A little 90s perhaps (does anyone else remember that trend of photorealistic insects printed on fabric?), but I think they’re very pretty.
These are all silks from Thai Silks
This is a print I’ve been admiring for a while. The butterflies are huge, over 9 inches!
This one is very loud, but I like it.
And this black and white print is really stunning. Couldn’t you just see it as a dress with some brightly colored trim?
