Home made pirate costume that blows the store bought out of the water ;)
I wanted to be a pirate this last halloween but wasn't impressed with what I found in costume shops... the materials were cheap and the cost high so I thought I'd make my own. (Accessories worn at the time not in pics :/ )
1). Corset - not made, purchased a few years ago.
2). Peasant top - Followed simplicity renaissance pattern
3). Skirt - altered simplicity renaissance pattern to make it more bustled
4). Hair piece - completely made myself (I didn't want to wear a hat or scarf) went with the "x-marks the spot" theme)

Here are some similar tutorials to help you make this one!
I can't get over that skirt. I've done that style a couple times, just kinda messing around with draping in stuff, but it totally never looks that good. What kind of fabrics did you use for this?
I was able to achieve the bustle look with plastic rings and ties sewn at different heights on the inside. The pattern I mentioned shows you how to do it, I changed it around a bit to get the height and shape I wanted. Its nice cause I can always loosen the ties for a softer look, tighten them to make a fuller bustle or untie them entirely and have the skirt hang. The way I'm wearing it in the pic is with the red layer tied tight all around and the black layer tied tight at the front and loose at the back to give a high-low effect.
