|aarrgghhh.....I mean, pirate coat progress
||[Apr. 8th, 2012|08:09 am]
I'm working on a pirate coat for myself. As usual, I start with a basic pattern (this time Simplicity's version of the Jack Sparrow outfit), and managed to get it all traced out. The two largest pieces are cut out but I haven't done the rest yet, 2am seemed late enough. |
The next step is to figure out how I'd prefer to simplify the garment, then I'll do what I call a wearable mockup (good enough to wear but willing to scrap if it's crap), which I'll tweak for fit and modify the pattern appropriately for myself.
Plans for this Easter holiday include a get together with my parents and sister, and some serious yard work in front to remove the signs of me cutting down one apple tree and putting four others in the ground. Only for wispy new trees and the remainder of the trunk should be left when I'm done.
