pirate shirt

By spotogspindel | September 23, 2014

Today is a sewing day. I´ve designed a pirate-costume for Pippi Longstocking´s father in the show starring in November.


First up is the shirt, simply because I had the fabric I needed already in my stack. Made with fine, white linen, and in a very big size.


Piecing it together, trying to make the inside look as good as the outside.


My students know that I don´t waste time on excessive use go pins. But sometimes it really is needed!


The shirt almost finished. It needs to be tried on, and the buttons on the arms adjusted.


A detail from the back and shoulder. The pattern is my own, and based loosely on an early 19th century fashion.
