Fabric search - light coloured skulls
« on: August 11, 2020, 22:54:24 PM »
Most of my summer dresses are dark coloured (no surprise there).

Does anyone recollect seeing any skull-printed fabric on a light background in fabric suitable for hot weather?

I dont mean cute, day-of-the dead type skulls, I mean real looking skulls, with perhaps roses etc.

Iminei just beat me but only cuz I started browsing. Google both Alexander Henry and do a search for pastel skull fabric. You'll find an assortment of choices.

@Goth Gardiner if you like Alexander Henry stuff (and I think you would) and you are on fb, then feel free to PM me and I will give you the details of a fab fabric seller on there who does loads of his stuff (and does pre-orders of his new ranges...). She also sells some lesser known designers who have a similar style.
