Book Week Pirate Costume

My daughter has always been the recipient of my sewing skills, although I thought it would taper off as she went into adulthood.  No chance of that though, as she is a teacher.

This year's book week theme was Treasure.  So I offered to make her a pirate costume to wear.

Finished by Dani, on Flickr

It was a fairly involved process, so for a change, I blogged it.  NB: no advertising or product endorsements.

The barefoot seamstress:  smelling vaguely of lavender and mothballs, and desperately craving chocolate.
