Pirate Lass

Added Dec 3, 2008

Completed: September 18, 2008

I made this for the international Talk Like a Pirate Day. I based the color scheme off the fabric for the pants, which I absolutely love!♥

The boning in the vest was definitely a new task for me, but heavens I love how it supports the garment so well that I’m glad I learned how to do it well. Grommets are my new favorite task, haha. // This costume also won me honorable mention at a Halloween dance (in which I was beat out by a store-bought Cruella diVille… but not that I’m bitter! ;))

Material Notes

Brocade, cotton

Simplicity pattern #3677 (pieces B, E, and G)

    Cruella be damned! I so wish they offered corseting classes near me.
