After two entire years, I finally finished this pirate jacket for my boyfriend. It’s made in black silk velvet with a gold satin lining, functional buttonholes, tons of hidden pockets, an eternity of hand-sewn braid, and about 50 bronze buttons.
I finished it in time for our boatwarming pirate party last Saturday. You can read LOADS more about the traumatic process of making this jacket plus see lots more photos at: http://www.fehrtrade.com/gallery/57/the-pirate-yarrty
