I'll start at the beginning.
The year was 1998. (I'm pretty sure of this.) I was starting up sewing lessons and given free reign over the entire fabric store to choose something appropriate for my first official class project, the drawstring bag. Naturally, I chose this periwinkle butterfly print twill; unabashedly 90's mall girl.
Of course, I couldn't stop there. I had to have this sweet print in each colour available so I went for the hot pink as well.
Fourteen years later, I made a pair of shorts.
Yes, when I wear these the first place my mind goes is the wall of butterfly hair clips at Claire's, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
Wore them to do some gardening, because they needed a wash anyway. Who'd have thought there would be so many opportunities to wear pink butterfly shorts?
Wait. Obviously, my sixth-grade self.
