I have yarn for a minimum of 6 Butterfly camisoles and love the crap out of the pattern, so I've been finding excuses to make more of them.
The first, of course, was for me.
And then my friend's birthday was looming and she loved my Butterfly, so next was one for her.
Realizing that I could crank one of these out in a couple of weeks, I decided that my mother, my own personal butterfly, needed one of these for Her birthday, and so the third Butterfly was born.
My mother is one of those classic redheads that actually looks fabulous in oranges and browns and greens. She already owns plenty of green and brown, so a sunset sort of colour was the obvious choice. I was kind of bored with single colours, however, so I threw some vivid pumpkin in there as well. That turned out to be a bit Too vivid, which led to the idea of the double-stranded frill and picot edging. I also like that double-stranding the straps made them a bit sturdier.
