I saw this great shirt-dress online with a viking longboat print on the side. It wasn't available (hadn't been for a really long time!) so I decided to make my own! Bought a blank shirt, drew and cut out a viking ship freezer paper stencil and ironed that sucker on.

 

Turned out pretty good I think! There were over 50 (mainly small) pieces to cut out and iron on (gaauuuuh).



It's the latest in viking fashion (so I'm told).





The inspirational dress can be found here (this link likely won't work forever).
The image I drew was based upon two ships from 'The Vikings' drawn by Steve Noon - though I based the water on the original shirt.

I like yours MUCH better than the original--both the shape of the neckline AND the stencil are lots nicer on yours! Good job!

One of these days I'm going to have to learn how to do freezer paper stencils. They've always scared me. Is it too daunting?!

I'm not sure where the helm is from - it was a (wedding? birthday?) gift from my brother-in-law. You can find em online if you do a search for 'viking' or 'sutton hoo' helmets. It's not exactly historically correct, but it is cool (and heavy!).

Freezer paper stenciling is surprisingly easy! I was extremely nervous at first but I did a few tests, and my first shirt came out pretty well! The first shirt I ever made is here, and here's another one I made a year later (I say screen print in the description, but I did do a freezer stencil for the Monty Python boar). I can definitely see improvements over time, so it is one of those things that the more you do it, the better you get, but even from the get-go, you're going to get an awesome shirt! Hit up one of the freezer paper tutorials on craftster!

Thank you for the encouragement.  I have a whole roll of freezer paper, just waiting for something or other (can't remember why I got it). I guess DD and I will have to stencil something over spring break!

Again, it's lovely!

Oh that is awesome!  Drool worthy awesome!  I have freezer paper that I haven't opened and used yet.  I've been doing discharge paste and plastic stencil to do my shirts, but I can't wait to try freezer paper!  I'm gathering inspiration and motivation right now.  ^_^  Thanks so much for sharing!  Such a freaking awesome shirt!
