Fashion Plate-Flutter

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.
