After having our first daughter we definitely wanted to “be” something that included the whole family. I had seen some leopard printed fabric at the store and was wondering what I could make. I had originally wanted to be the Flintstones but decided to be a CAVE FAMILY instead.
I bought some leopard print fabric at the store. I bought a few yards and folded it in half so I only had to sew one seam down the side. I cut out the neck of my husband’s all jagged in a U-Like shape and for mine and my daughter’s. I made it a one strapped dress by cutting diagonally across. I also made jagged cuts at the bottom.
My husband wore flesh colored flipflops and I bought some “bone” accents at the party store. I cut an extra piece of matching material to make a headband for my daughter and tied the bones into it. I bought a bone necklace, bracelet and anklet for me. VOILA!! We won our neighborhood costume contest for best family dress!
