Dia de la Abby: #8 - Skull Stamp/Skull print dress

A few months ago, we were invited to the formal wedding of two of our close friends. John and I had outfits, but our daughter, Alex, did not have a fancy dress to wear...well, one that still fit. She is growing so fast, her old ones don't fit any more. I asked her what kind of dress she wanted me to make her, she told me she wanted a skull dress. So, I made her one. She wore the dress this past weekend.

Finished Dress


There are lots of commercial skull fabrics available, but since I wanted to use this creation for a Skull-A-Day post, I decided on making my own skull print fabric. I made a foam stamp, for which I made a tutorial, so you can make your own foam stamps and print fabric using them. I think I will make a skull cherries stamp next for my own dress. Alex's dress is not your average wedding attire, but it was well received by all.

Every week in the 4.0 year, I will be post my own Dia de la Abby posts as well as a tutorial with instructions on how I made my piece. Hopefully you feel inspired by my posts just as I was by Noah's Skull-A-Day 1.0 daily project.
