In yet another demonstration of my impractical but very fluffy sewing, I made a fairy dress.  I wanted something different for the wings though; while I do like the fairy wings made from a wire frame and stretched stocking net, this dress seemed to need something else.  So I came up with these:


They are stamped with a butterfly wing design in gold fabric paint, then beaded and sequined to ridiculous levels.  There's some wire in there to give the wings some support and a button hole in the centre to attach it to the button up back of the dress.  They are backed with some of the silver stuff left over from this project - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=368567.0

Some images of the rest of the dress:

There's some more pics on the blog too and a bit more detail about that moth eaten fabric here

As an adult I would totally sport that dress, the details are awesome.

Fabulous! I love the color and all the detail work.

Began teaching myself to sew and design in Aug '09...one dress at a time!
