Fashioneyesta, https://www.facebook.com/Fashioneyesta. After purchasing several of my other hatchlings Emily asked if I had considered a Swallowtail butterfly as it reminded her of a childhood story. After several sketches I felt I had perfected the shape and made my first sample. I decided to keep the colours to black and a very strong contrast in pure silk. the first hatchling was made in turquoise.
Several other colour ways followed, the most popular at the moment being the green.
After a making session one day I placed all the swallowtails on my mannequin and this sparked a new idea!
