Make It Today

... well I actually made it some time ago but...

The Make It Today magazine has featured my home made wedding dress. It was great to see it in print - second time now - although it may be the spur to do something with the dress... watch this space!

Captain Finn Sparrow

My boy is 6. To celebrate yet another dress up outfit. This time a proper pirate captain.

I found the out of print pattern on eBay and was going to just do the coat and shirt but ended up making the whole outfit - long lined vest, trousers and 'boots'!

The buttons and gold braid really finish off the great design of the cuffs and coat back split.

Just like the original Jack Sparrow - this pirate is mastering the looks to lull his victims into a false sense of security before taking all their bounty!
