All about crocheting, sewing, and knitting.

The Butterfly Salwar




I sewed this salwar a while back for my niece. This was my first (and so far only) try with this type of salwar, so I wanted to share it with you all as inspiration. It’s called “Butterfly Salwar” because it looks like it has small wings on the sides where the buttons are. Let me know what you all think. Does it look butterfly-ish to you all?

Here’s a close up on the “wings” aka box pleats w/ buttons:
