Dia de los Muertos skeleton dress

Just one more summer dress for the month of June,  then I'll move on to some different things.  I made this dress for Fiestas de Santa Fe, the yearly celebration of the founding of Santa Fe, NM.

The inspiration was the celebratory skeleton fabric more than anything. The look of the dress has nothing to do with traditional fiesta attire,  I went with with a fitted princess line bodice that flares into a full skirt.  I made the pattern by hand,  as it's nice to have something fit just right.  I included in-seam side pockets because so many dresses don't have them, and I don't always carry a purse.
