Comments - How to Make a Girl Pirate Costume

Excellent tutorial!!

A substitute for leather when making your corset,  would maybe be a dark black denim. Just an idea. I know this will definitely work better than a pleather, or imitation leather. Of course black suede would work wonderfully.  Basicly, a sturdy fabric choice is needed here or the corset will not stay put, and/or your "eyelets/ lace holes "  will tear. I realize this is in answer to an older  question, but I thought it may still help someone out, in a "pinch". Happy Halloween. :)

Keep your eye out for a pair of leather pants at salvation army or goodwill. Check out the make your own pirate hat and corset. I want to try and do this for Morgan. We picked up a button down shirt today from goodwill : )

Yes, use vinyl, fleece, or any other material that won't fray or unravel.  Use a stronger fabric the tighter you plan to tie it and the longer you want it to last... it is possible to rip through almost any fabric, especially when you've just cut holes in it. Go to a thrift shop or to the remnant bin of your local fabric store and see what you turn up.

I love you video. I am making this for my daughter. Should the shirt fit when you buy it? and the pants, should they be big, for more material? Thank you .
