Ahoy me hearties!!

Guess who got invited to a pirate party??!

The smallest was a late invite to the party but luckily was happy to go with her existing pettiskirt.
An easy pirate girl dress-up, pettiskirt, existing Pink Fig Olivia top in white, foam hat from local $2 shop, eye patch from same $1.50.
Leggings and boots in the wardrobe.


Oh, and of course the fake pirate tattoos from the $2 shop too!

I made the belts using satin and then had the guy who lives here punch some holes in with a saddlers punch then we added eyelets (just from Spotlight) and threaded it closed with a ribbon.

They rode up a little but the kids didn't seem to care.

I made these skirts a little less full - the bottom layers are 2/3 of the ones I made at Christmas time - so they were quicker but still effective.

Perfect pirates!

And 'the guy who lives here' must feel a bit outnumbered from time to time!
