Our dear friend, Bonnie, recently revealed that she has a secret love of skulls. Who loves skulls?! Of course, we ran with it. Since I’m kind of behind on birthdays (sorry Bon!), by the time I got to the fabric store I had a wide skull pattern selection. I chose a more subtle skull lace to turn into an anthropologie-inspired dress-apron (sensing a pattern?). I picked up an old eyelet curtain from the thrift store and was able to incorporate it as part of the skirt.
Piecing it all together was definitely a task, especially since I wasn’t working with a pattern. This was also my first project using the dress form – it was fun but I need to practice and fiddle with it much more. Too bad not all bodies are perfectly lump free like a dress form, right?
Overall success, and I have now I have some more apron requests to fill…practice makes perfect!
