"Forget Me Knot" Dress, Butterfly style

An Unscheduled Finish:
So if you haven't gotten your bundle of PDF Patterns yet, you better hurry up, the sale ends on the 11th.  If you purchase it through my website I get part of the proceeds, how awesome is that.  It's 18 PDF patterns for $24.95 but with a value of $139.
One of the patterns included is for this too cute Forget me knot dress by Me Sew Crazy , I just had to make it because it has this hole in the back that I wanted to make into the shape of a butterfly, so I did a little tweaking to the pattern and came up with this for the back.
2 holes instead of 1, not quite a perfect butterfly shape, but fun.
The fabric is Cocoon by Valori Wells, the top is Cashmere in Ruby White and the bottom is Liv in Coral, I bought it from Stash Modern Fabric during her Black Friday Sale. She is being very generous for us Internationals in that she can fit 10 yards in a package and is giving $5 dollars off of the cost of postage.  Here's here blog page Stash Fabrics.
Now you may ask why my model isn't wearing her dress, she decided she wanted to be the photographer today and took pictures of her toys.
Taking pictures instead of modeling.
Don't forget to pick up your own bundle of patterns so you can make any one of the 18 patterns, plus there is a giveaway, so enter that too!
