1  Help needed with female Pirate/Renaissance costume... in Costumes: Discussion and Questions by tinathellama on: August 01, 2005 01:50:55 PM
Ok you craftsters... I need some help!

I am in the market for a Pirate/Renaissance costume to wear to the Renaissance festival that my favorite man goes to every year. This is him in his costume:

So, I want to make something to wear that is complimentary to the garb he already has. I was thinking a shirt that is similar to his, but lowcut with a under-bust corset over, and a long, ruffled, multi-layered skirt, and these black boots that I have.

The boots:

They are the most pirate-ish shoes I own, and I don't have the funds to buy any others. Unless I thrift them...


So, obviously I have some vague idea as to what I want it to look like, and I'm a fairly competent seamstress, and I am able to follow tutes and patterns with ease. So I ask of you...

Mines not dyed, but I recently got it cut into a Shag-Mohawk-Mullet... depending on the way I gell it.


Not so Spikey:

I thought I was going to for a simple cut... and it ended up taking 3 hours. She "texturized" my entire head... but I totally love it!

Yay for everyone on here with brightly colored hair, I totally miss mine! It was purple... but alas, no longer.

Rock and roll!

3  Leopard print Pillowcase skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by tinathellama on: April 02, 2005 07:46:04 PM
Here is my latest project... and the first one I've posted on here!
It was a left over from some sheets I used as curtains, so I:

1. Reinforced the side seam (there was only a seam on one side) to avoid any embarassing "rip" situations

2. Cut the closed end open, then turned it under and sewed a hem with space for elastic

3. Threaded the elastic though, and sewed it shut

4. Cut up the side seam about 7 inches (from the bottom, up) to make a slit (so I could walk!) and hemmed both sides

5. Danced, because I was done!

(Sorry about the poor quality of the images)

I wear it with the slit in the back middle (sorry, no pictures... I couldn't manage to twist that way in the mirror). Also, when I tuned the top over and hemmed it, I made it so the hem was about 2 inches lower in the front (the side opposite the slit) because my butt takes up more room in back. If you don't do this, it tends to come up quite a bit higher in the front, which bugs me.

Hope you like it!
