If I was being a pirate I personally would do:
Corset + lightweight white slightly sheer shirt/blouse.
Shread skirt. VERY easy to make.
Big hat with a HUGE colourful feather on, or handmade big bow to match the colour scheme.
A necklace with a large locket on.
Big boots of course.
I personally love over the knee stripy socks
OMG I made my first tute. If its unclear please tell me
*To make the shread skirt*
*Get a length of wide ribbon and make sure it goes round your waist twice with about 6inches extra. ie if your a 30inch waist your ribbon needs to be 66inches long
*Take bits of other ribbon, ripped lengths of fabrics, bits of nettin etc and pin to one side of the ribbon.any length/thickness is fine. Only attach them below the halfway point, and leave 3inches either end of the ribbon empty
*once you have covered the ribbon, fold it over at the halfway point so that the top part of the ribbon covers the top of the lengths of fabric. Sew it down.
Now u have a skirt. Just wrap it round u, theres should be lots of coverage as its going round your waist twice, and tie the end bits of ribbon together on your waist/at the front/back... If you used alot of sheer material or theres isnt much coverage, PLEASE wear hotpants/shorts, or at least some VERY nice underwear!!
Oooo thought a pic might be helpful. Its a crappy PaintShop one though
