So my three year old son decided that we should all be pirates this year for halloween (a great idea, I think) and with me being the eternal procrastinator, I have just started making the costumes (I work better under pressure, I guess)... this is the costume for my 17 month old girl...

Everything is made from recycled sheets and drapery. The shirt is from Vegbee's peasant blouse tutorial: http://indietutes.blogspot.com/2007/07/peasant-blouse.html

But now, is it piratey enough? I am going to make her some sort of headwear and perhaps an apron? Does she look like she is just going to oktoberfest...

Jaunty pirate hat-a bit like a male parite-e.g tricorne or with skull and crossbones-so looks like she has fun along with the fellas
Eye patch-but doublt she will play ball
Give her a cutlass to join in all the piratey fun (I don't beleive girls should be girlie!
Blsck pinny with skull and cross bones (but not to make her look like she is like Snow White housekeeping for dwarfs)
Preten tattos

Add a plain skirt underneath and hike up the striped skirt on one side (just tuck into the waist band), that and a bandana would make it definitely "pirate".

I agree, with the right accessories she could look super-piratey!

Thanks for the suggestions! I was worried that she wouldn't look like a pirate! we have eye patches but I doubt that the baby would keep that on for very long (assuming that I could get it on her at all). the hat may be rejected but I will try my damnedest! she is very opinionated for such a small one  Wink

Maybe an apron or overskirt with a jagged hem? Too cute by the way!! Smiley

Tee hee--my first thought was, how cute--someone made a little dirndl!  It looks super sweet, but most pirates aren't so sweet. 

Maybe accessorize with some skull and cross bones imagery somewhere, like on a little apron?  Could be fun if you did a freezer paper stencil for that . . .
