Well they aren’t 100% finished yet, but they were done enough for the twins to wear to preschool & too darn cute not to share now! They are made using the “Bundle: Corset, Layered Tulle Skirt, Peasant Top + Bonus eBook!” from YouCanMakeThis.com back when they had one of their discount codes. I have to say they turned out almost exactly as I had planned. I still have to finish the white long sleeve peasant top for trick or treating on Halloween as well as glue tassels onto the end of the ropes.
I was very pleased with the pattern except for the fact that it is one of the original/first e-books/patterns that came out in 2006 and it leaves you doing a little guess work math wise, but I still think it was totally worth it! The only change I am going to make is that I am going to shorten the underskirts & tulle about 2″ because 1.) It doesn’t need to be as long as it is and 2.) The proportions just look a tad off to me. Not only did they turn out cute but considering some of the pricier fabrics & notions I chose they were still just shy of $20 each to make.
Anyway enough chat, time for a few pictures! These are just quick cellphone shots, I will get more of the completed outfits this weekend.
Oh my word!!! CUTENESS!!!!
Darling! I would just give them all of my candy!
Love them! Also love how their eye patches are on opposite eyes!
Yeah the opposite eye patches & earring was so I could tell them apart in the pictures!!! lol Originally I was going to use gold tulle on one & silver on the other but the store didn’t have enough of those colors!

(asking if we can take a photo of the cutest costumes has been a yearly tradition. this year – no camera.)
Excellent seamstress-ing there, mama.
Arr… great little pirate ladies!
Wow, they look fantastic, I cant believe they are “not finished yet” poeple with faint from their cuteness if you make them any cuter!!
