This pirate costume was for a lady who wanted a little bit of a feminine touch to a traditionally male style. I made the coat in a bold gold and green jacquard with a dupioni silk liner in contrasting rust color. The entire coat was cut out one piece at a time, in order to make it perfectly symmetrical. The back of the coat has a pleated flap for extra flare. The bodice is lightly boned for support, and is worn instead of a traditional male vest. The ultra suede pants have an elastic waist for comfort and ease of wear. The blouse is made of crinkle cotton, and has elastic channels in the sleeves that sit above the elbows for a puffy layered look. The removable jabot consists of 3 layers of hand-gathered lace, and buttons behind the neck.
