I made both of our pirate costumes. I used some relavant patterns and researched pirate outfits to come up with a pattern for fairly accurate costumes. The jackets, shirts, vests, and pants were made by me. We have hand dyed, hand sewn and knitted scaves I made for the costumes. My husband doesn't have boots so I made some shoe covers to mimick a boot. I also screen printed and made a pirate flag. We love wearing them so much we had a professional photoshoot done in them too.
Pattern or design used: My own design
