Halloween is just around the corner and SwimZip has the perfect twist on the classic Skeleton costume! This DIY Skeleton costume is adorable and more importantly, EASY! Make the process one step easier by ordering the SwimZip Long Sleeve Rash Guard, and you are already halfway done with your DIY Skeleton Costume!
Here is how you make the skeleton ribs!!!
-Black Long Sleeve Top
-1 Sheet of White Felt
-White thread and needle
-Skeleton rib stencil
Print out this stencil to whatever size works best with the size of your top.
1. Pin your stencil to the white felt and cut it out. This was a little tricky because of the thickness of our felt. You can also cut out the stencil, trace along the outsides with a pencil on to your felt and cut it out if that is easier for you!
2. We cut our rib stencil in to two pieces since our top has a zipper. Pin both sides to the front of your top wherever you think it looks most like the wearer's ribs would be.
3. Sew the felt to your top with white thread using a running stitch (we unzipped the top to make it easier to sew).
4. If your top has a zipper make sure the other side is aligned at the top and bottom when it's zipped before you start sewing it. Then, sew the other side to your top!
Boom! You're done!!
