Here are a few pirate shirts I've been itching to make. Maybe I'll get around to one of them this summer.
I love Will Turner's musty Burgundy shirt from At World's End.
And how about a Dread Pirate Roberts shirt? Every good pirate needs one!
Look at that cartridge pleating! This would be one of those time consuming projects that will take awhile but I'm crazy enough to actually do. Weather I finish or not...well...;)

I took a fitted sleeve pattern and cut out a piece of muslin and a piece if batting. I cut the batting in half and folded the muslin in half over it and pinned it in place.

Marian's Wardrobe by TheArtofClothes on Polyvore.com
I tell you, polyvore is addicting! This set was inspired by Maid Marian played by the lovely Lucy Griffiths.
To the left shows her style at the castle, more feminine and jewelry from Sir Guy of Gisborne. To the right shows her Sherwood Forest side, where her heart truly lies, with Robin Hood.

I've had a polyvore account for forever and I play around on it occasionally...but I never actually finished a set. Today I was inspired by girlish daydreams and fairy tales and this is what emerged.

It fits like an ordinary cape, fastening at the throat with a tie:
The second looks like it's also made of wool but it connects under the chin, the hood is a circular piece, fits like a pullover hoodie/poncho:

But I have a feeling mother wouldn't approve. ;) But seriously...isn't Wickham just dashing? Even if he is wicked. :) "I think a man looks nothing without Regimentals." ;)
Hmm....one day I'll make some men's costumes.
