Description

Simplicity 9769
Made a few years ago and then worn as an assembled pirate costume.
I made it too big because I picked the size that matched my bust measurement.
I should have picked a size or two smaller so I could really cinch in my waist.
I used bias tape to cover the bones, and the bones eventually started to pop out at the top and bottom. I would recommend using cotton twill tape instead.

Material Notes

Grey and black paisley jacquard – cotton poly blend from joann’s, metal bones, metal busk, spaghetti shoe laces, pre-made bias tape (bad idea – should have used twill tape)

Difficulty

Intermediate

      I forget…. I ordered them online after doing some googling. I know where I can teh exact same ones here in NYC, but mail order was the best I could do back then. These ones are metal that has been coated in something white. Good luck!
