In honor of Halloween, a luscious 1930s pirate costume, DuBarry 1300b. If only it included those boots! Check out the skull and crossbones on them!
The pattern is available on ebay for another four days, so you have plenty of time to sew this up for next Halloween. You'll look smashing and you can inform your fellow revelers that women have been dressing up as sexy versions of (insert name here) for the holiday for decades.
Me, I've always taken the opposite approach and dressed as something hideous. That's the point of Halloween, isn't it? I'm usually pretty happy when I leave the house -- but then I arrive at a party full of bustier and short skirt-wearing firewomen, nurses, superheroes and cats (oh, the cats!). Doubt sets in and by night's end you'll find me at the snack table, trying to keep my fake scars from falling into the punch.
