I got into sewing to make costumes. The first thing I ever sewed was a pair of jester pants for a Halloween costume in sixth grade. Hat making started for costume purposes too. I also have an affinity for pirates. Maybe I get it from my dad who wears a skull and cross bones bandanna when we jogs and flies the jolly roger from the back of his bicycle. So needless to say, when I moved to Massachusetts and first heard about the New England Pirate Faire, I knew I would be going and getting all dolled up to boot.
Most of my free time this month as been spent sewing my costume. My etsy shop is not as well stocked as I would like it to be as a result, but I am proud of my outfit! It was well worth the time it took to make it.
And, I worked out a new design for my fancy fascinators while I was at it!
