Here’s the first of many Fashion Illustrations to come. I plan to make regular Friday Fashion Plate posts.
Today’s fashion plate Flutter is named for her butterfly jewelry. But I couldn’t resist adding other butterfly inspiration below. If you haven’t already, check out my post Metamorphosis.
Part Four: Time and Eternity by Emily Dickinson
MY cocoon tightens, colors tease,
I ’m feeling for the air;
A dim capacity for wings
Degrades the dress I wear.
A power of butterfly must be
The aptitude to fly,
Meadows of majesty concedes
And easy sweeps of sky.
So I must baffle at the hint
And cipher at the sign,
And make much blunder, if at last
I take the clew divine.
This is the butterfly scene from Bright Star. I would have loved a room like this as a girl.
Who am I kidding…….even now.
