Kaleidoscope Coat

 A group of butterflies is called a Kaleidoscope.  The butterflies float up the back to the shoulder and a few have made it to the front.  This jacket is made from recycled jeans and scraps of lace and tapestry, then the butterflies were applied. The lining is new materials, and it is inner lined with fall-off pieces of drapery flannel inner lining. 

I like doing these coats so much I am planning to do a whole series. Until my stash of recyclable fabrics runs out.
