Pirate costume WIP update:

  • Made the top from scratch, out of a two way stretch linen in a natural unbleached colour. Used one of my favourite t-shirts as the base pattern and then eyeballed the sleeves as big as I could make them with the fabric I had left.
  • The skirt is hand dyed by yours truly. Using two Dylon powder dyes (Ocean Blue and Navy Blue), I dyed an old hand-made 90s raw silk wedding gown (white), then chopped it up and made it to fit me like a skirt. Just have to put in grommets and lacing at the back to keep it at my waist!

Tomorrow is figuring out the grommets and finalizing accessories. Pics will follow later this week. <333
