I bought some skull fabric last winter intending to my curtains for my nephew.   Then my SIL said their rental doesn't allow curtain rods and they can't use a tension rod on their windows. Sad  So the other day, I showed her pictures of the fabric and asked why the nephew would like.  She said pajamas, piraterific pajamas.  Woo!  So I got busy with my favorite easy pirate costume pattern (McCalls M4952).

I'm extra proud of this project because it represents a few firsts for me:
(1) my first ever button hole with my button hole attachment.  I used the keyhole version for the drawstring
(ii) My first ever sewing with a fabric requiring a ball-point needle.  It wasn't quite lycra, but was close, and it took a couple missteps and test runs to figure out how to sew it.
(c) The first time I have actually completed a project from a pattern in under 4 hours!!

Unfortunatly, my nephew lives 3000 miles away, so I have no model pictures Sad

Here is the reversible vest:

Vest with sash (not the patten sash, who needs a pattern to sew a sash):

The pants (currently unhemmed, I need to know his hem length)

And a close-up of my button hole

Very nice... I'm also making a pirate costume.. but for my niece... she's 2 and picked it out.. I think because of Spongebob... anyhow, I'm going to use rainbow for the skirt and the green for the vest white for the sleeve... more of a girlie pirate... but I have a different pattern.. one for toddlers... it should be pretty cool though.
You did a great job!
