More inspiration from Michelle + GIVEAWAY

Hello! I'm Michelle from Tres Bien Ensemble and I am so pleased to be here. Before I dive into my inspiration for this challenge, I want to extend an enormous THANK YOU!! to Nat and Lucy for inviting me to be a guest. I'm so very impressed by the genius of this community. I love a good challenge based project, and I find it inspiring to see the many ways individuals interpret a theme. This blog is brilliant, ladies. Hats off to you!

At the announcement of this month's challenge, my mind went straight to a cut of fabric I had stashed. The combination of the changing season, a new pattern, and my hibernating, butterfly print fabric were the driving force behind my Wings themed project.

To further fuel my fancy, I created a board to keep track and pull ideas from. I found a variety of beautiful butterfly print garments,

I was also able to find a wide variety of Butterfly print fabrics. Lots and lots of ideas to choose from! Are you feeling 'all a flutter' yet? As a closing note and a gesture of gratitude for the delightful privilege of being here, I want to offer a giveaway! On April 15th, I'll reveal the skirt I made using Deer&Doe's, Chardon Skirt ,and Nat and Lucy will randomly select one of you to receive a copy of this pattern!
