“A glimmering butterfly dress . . .”

Isn’t this absolutely gorgeous?

According to the description, this “glimmering butterfly dress and matching headdress [were] made by Worth in 1912. Ivory silk charmeuse overlaid with chiffon, bodice and back exquisitely fashioned in butterfly wings glittering with amber beads and iridescent peacock-blue paste jewels. Created for a costume party.”

I don’t write in this era, but a gown like this makes me want to!
