Maddie had an invitation to go to a birthday party where she needed a pirate costume. This is the design we came up with. She wanted pants and I wanted her to wear a skirt, she got the pants. I drafted the patterns and the fit was perfect. I didnt have time to make a toile to check the design but it all turned out ok. The pants are made of a suede like fabric and the bodice is made from cotton velveteen left over from a dressing gown that I made for Constanze when she was little.
