|The completed costume.|
but made button holes in the front of the neck and in the sleeves to thread my ribbon through
For the corset I used some pretty fabric I didn't have much of that I picked up at a second hand store a while back and this evange sews tutorial for a Swiss corset
but made the back higher.
For the pants I used 2 bedsheets I picked up at a second hand store and sewed a pair of pajama pants using simplicity 9871
I used two sheets because I lined the pants as just one layer of light cotton was quite see through. This has been a very well used pattern it was the first thing I sewed when I began sewing again a few years after I left the nest and I've sewn at least 6 pairs of PJ's from it.
|No pirate is complete without a parrot. The bandanna is a shawl my mum gave me a long time ago.|
|This is the mesh basket it had plastic stuff in it to give it structure which I cut out and used for the boning in the corset. I've also saved the mesh to make some reusable produce bags.|
|The boots didn't really make it into the picture. I picked these hardly used Roxy boots up for 10 bucks at the second hand store.|
