It was my son's pirate party yesterday and he looked super cute in his pirate outfit (that I made). I made it big enough that he'll hopefully have a couple of years wear out of it. Or I have enough fabric to make the rag bottomed pants into trousers by adding onto the bottoms, or hemming them to make shorts.

The tee material was pretty fun with the stripes and crossbones. My second time making a tshirt and this time I got to use some stabilising strips on the shoulders. That was a first.

I love the waist coat, it has red inside and a little pocket for secret treasures. I also made the red scarf under his captains hat with a little skull and crossbones bondafixed on.

I had fun fun fun!
