Butterfly Ballerina



“Let us spend our lives chasing the tiny moments of grace that hide in borrowed breaths, stolen glances, and the last instant before smiling lips come to rest.” -Tyler Knot Gregson

DIY insider tip: I made the skirt myself using three layers of silk tulle over two layers of the heavier nylon tulle. Follow online directions to color mix RIT dye for the desired tones of blue. Stitched all layers into a gathered waist bound by a satin bias cut ribbon.
