On board and on shore, everyone is dressed as a Pirate and saying "arrrr" a lot.
Some of the cottagers, along with their weekend guests, put on a skit for the passing ship full of Pirates.
It's a whole lot of fun and everyone has a good time acting silly.
Last year I made Caitlin a Pirate costume when she went on one of Pirate cruises however she has since outgrown most of the outfit (skirt and top) except for the vest.
Today I made her a new outfit and used the Roller Skate dress pattern.
I scalloped the hem using the template from the O+S Badminton skirt.
It's really hot and humid here right now so instead of lining the dress, I made the bodice lining longer and used that portion for the elastic casing.
I used black piping on the sleeves but simply topstitched the neck edge.
Caitlin is happy with her new Pirate costume. She is already sporting several Pirate tattoos at the moment.
And bonus ... I can add this Roller Skate Pirate costume to Flip This Pattern!
