so i wanted to be a pirate for halloween and what does every lady pirate need? a leather corset!! but then, as i was making it, i realized that it didnt really want to be for a pirate. this corset screamed hippie.

for this corset i started with a leather/suede jacket i had.
it looked very much like this one but was dark brown:


so i cut it up, and used simplicity 5006 altering it so the corset would be an underbust. its purposefully sloppy, cause when i started out, i figured what pirate goes through the trouble of making their clothes perfect? they're too busy pillaging to be OCD about sewing.

and voila!







its got 3 mother of pearl snaps on the back to close it.

the last two are it with my costume. its a peasant skirt and a green top. i plan on wearing the flower headband i made a couple months ago too. this is my post for the headband:

I'm confused, are you going to be a pirate or a hippie?
