A Pirate's Life!

It's that fun time of year when it's perfectly fine to dress up in costumes!  This year, my husband and I dressed as pirates.  I was able to take two leather coats (one not pictured) and turn them into a fun pirate corset.

I even made a new blouse with a fun sleeve detail.



Can you tell from the pictures what part of the coat was used to cut the new bodice?

If you would like to visit my blog, Second Chances by Susan, there are more close-up pictures and tips on working with leather.

Amazing, no I would never have guessed where that bodice shaping came from.

Wow, this may inspire me to be a swashbuckling pirate with my own leather garb! I absolutely love this refashion!

Can I just say what a reduction to search out someone who really is aware of what theyre speaking about on the internet. You undoubtedly know easy methods to deliver an issue to light and make it important. Extra folks need to learn this and perceive this facet of the story. I cant consider youre not more standard because you positively have the gift. casino bonus
