Sweater make over

I haven't posted in quite a while--but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy with creative things.

I had this chenille sweater, which while pretty, was also shapeless and a solid color. So I decided to make it fancy. I took it in at the waist to give it some shape, and then appliqued butterflies cut from a fleece print to it. Then I stitched down the applique with embroidery thread and added embroidered details. Below is the basted design on the back.
Design basted to sweater front.
finished back.
