Last night was a friends 21st birthday with a Pirate and Wenches theme and I being dutiful daughter I am went on a sewing frenzy to make sure we were costumed.

I made the black and white furry pants my father is wearing as well as the red .. (thing) that covers his chest. On my mother I made the red corset belt and the petticoat she has underneath it. My brothers costume we bought from Spotlight fully made! And my costume..

Wheeh.. this one took me two days. It's a white strapless dress with puffy skirt and a few layers of lace sewn across the top. The jacket is a knee length fitted red jacket cut so it doesn't go all the way together, and it laces up the front with silver stripes and buttons. There's also silver stripes on the shoulders. The white arm thingies are detachable because i plan to wear the jacket elsewhere.

All costumes were created from patterns I drafted. Took me two or three days to finish it all!

But YAGH. Best pirate family ever. we even had an inflatable pirate chest.
 but excuse my cacky blonde hair and my angry expression!
