Pirate Top:
Cutting:

· Cut upper bodice piece from white broadcloth, lower bodice pieces from black broadcloth.

Construction:
Follow basic top instructions, but before stitching lower center front bodice and lower side front bodice pieces, create this tab insert:

· Cut 2,  4" x 6" pieces from black fabric

· Fold each piece in half lengthwise and stitch ½" seam at each end. Trim corners and turn right side out, press.

· Insert each tab piece between center front and side bodice pieces, matching raw edges, placing finished edge of tab ½" below upper raw edge of lower bodice piece.

· Punch 5 grommets at equal distance down each length of tab piece.

Continue creating top following basic top instructions, then place gold lace thru grommets and tie into bow. Apply VELCRO® Fabric Fusion hook and loop fastener to back for closure.

Pirate Sleeves
Cutting:

· Measure circumference of upper arm - Cut 4 pieces elastic 1" longer than upper arm measurement

· Cut 2 rectangle pieces from white fabric "double the upper arm circumference" x 12" (example if upper arm measures 11" then you will cut the sleeve pieces 22" x 12")

Construction:

· Fold in half matching short ends together, stitch ½" seam.

· Press under 1/2" then  1½" on each edge of sleeve piece forming casing. Stitch close to casing edge, leaving an opening to insert elastic

· Stitch again, ¾" away from outside edge around each end of sleeve. This will create the ruffle edge when the elastic is inserted.

· Insert elastic into opening, overlap ends of elastic and stitch to secure.

· Stitch opening closed

Cutting:

· Cut skirt from red broadcloth. Cut tulle and broadcloth for underskirt.

Construction:

Follow basic skirt instructions, and underskirt instructions. After completing skirt apply

· Pin mark a line 5" above skirt hem

· Cut triangles of varying length, highest up to 5" line, to create jagged hem

· Glue strips of sequins on diagonal across length of mask. Glitter between diagonals.

· Cut eye patch from black foam, decorate eye patch with black glitter. Edge with black sequins, glue eye patch on mask
