This pattern, S3618, is your basic tart-y looking pirate, red riding hood, French maid, etc getup with a circle skirt, lace up bodice, and puffy shirt. I made a red riding hood costume but did a few things differently than the pattern called for. I'm probably too old to be wearing such a thing... but anyway, It's the most complicated thing i've made, as a beginning sewer. I wore it out for Halloween. I know its a costume and not exactly clothing, but to me was more of a sewing project as i'm trying to learn the basics of garment construction, so thought i'd share it. Thanks for lookin!

two questions: do you have any idea what the blue outfit on the front was? and did you find the vest fit without alterations? i used the same pattern and took the back in at the waist a good three or four inches.

tsamutiny: That's a good question- it's kinda vague, and doesn't say exactly what its supposed to be. I think it's kind of a saloon girl thing and if the petticoat were frilly enough, could be a can-can girl. Yes, I had to alter the vest a LOT. But my main issue was the side front panels- they overlapped. I also had to take in one of the side seams a few inches.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments!  Grin

my front panels also overlapped at first but after i took the back in enough, the front seemed to resolve itself. i do wonder just who the vest is meant to fit without altering, though.
