My little models {sisters} were so fun to work with!  
They each had their very own personality and attitude that suited these dresses perfectly.

While one sister would pose the other two would run around like little rock stars.
It was awesome.

I took them to our local skate park.  
It was the perfect location for a moustache dress photo shoot.
Dude!
So cute.
 
I wish I could put them all in my pocket and take them home…
 
To make your own moustache dress you will need to follow this Spring Ruffle Dress Tutorial.  You can find step by step directions and dress measurements there.  But first we need to create our very own unique, moustache patterned fabric…

Start by cutting moustache shapes out of craft foam.  
Or using moustache stamps if you can find them.

Use fabric paint to randomly stamp moustaches all over your fabric.  
Be sure to have some of the images overlap the edges of the fabric.

  When the paint is dry, heat set the stamped image by ironing the back of the fabric.
