Caleb played in the Music for Munchkins Concert yesterday. The theme was Pirates, and I made this pirate shirt for him. Well, I didn't really make it completely, I merely finished it. It's been hanging in the closet sans cuffs for a few years, and this concert was the impetus I needed to finish it. The pattern is the Costume Connection's Renaissance Common Man. I can't even remember what size this is. From what I remember, it's pretty straightforward sewing, though I think I changed the construction of the center opening a bit. It's not "offically" period, as I added edgestitching and I serged the seams.
He makes a pretty good pirate, no? He made his own leather vambraces, and one of his dad's leather vests and bandanas complete the ensemble. It was a great time -- Calvin and Connor enjoyed the instrument petting zoo and crafts. The concert itself was wonderful, with swordfighting, shark attacks, treasure, plank walking, and a superhero (yes, a superhero: String Man). Good music too! Caleb played his cello wonderfully, though I do admit to a small bias. :)
