Butterflies appear in the most surprising places. Here, both a caterpillar and a butterfly have been painstakingly embroidered onto the lapels of this French, 1789-1794 revolutionary waistcoat or vest. Probably worn by a French aristocrat who had converted to the revolutionary cause, the needlepoint garment signalled a clear adherence to revolutionary beliefs. The butterfly has significance here, for its clipped wings (cut by the scissors stitched below) symbolised the perceived political incorrectness of the showy, flamboyant insect who was, in common parlance, representative of the opulent and ever changing fashionistas of the period. The caterpillar on the right hand side, surrounded by his clipped wings, is surrounded by vibrant green grass and seems all the more healthy for his shearing.
