 Rib cage / skeleton Antique lace and Vintage sweat shirt recon ( I think this will be perfect for " ugly sweater " season ! )

 I took a vintage 80s sweat shirt and 3 types of green antique lace and created this cool skeleton rib cage  ! Its pretty self explanatory , Just chalk out your rib cage ( you can use another shirt for reference , free hand it , or print a template online )  pin on your lace and zig zag stitch . Its easiest to do one side at a time ( or even a few " ribs " at a time to keep everything straight . This shirt is over 25 years old so it had a few light tiny discolorations so I spattered some darker purple fabric paint on and they are totally camouflaged !



 I made a black and white version to - Ill add pics to this thread when I get them
Thanks for looking and have a great day
