Arrrg! I love pirate knit!,

So... on one of Mom's and my JoAnn shopping sprees, we found this awesome pirate knit in the clearance aisle. Hello? I love it.

So I made a muslin t-shirt for me out of it. It still needs a little work, but I like it... even though Mr.Cole says I look like a little boy. (I think the Holbrooks (what I call my boobs) contradict that...)

I used a Kwik Sew t-shirt pattern from my Mom's sewing room with LOTS of adjustments.

Here are the pictures... I tried to take myself. hahahahhahahaha.





Here's some William took of me and Lulu:






I also made Lucy this adorable pirate dress as one of my submissions to the lil blue boo challenge:




I used the Sienna dress pattern for this one. Made adjustments to the sleeve width and added a ruffle at the bottom. I didn't even hem the ruffle. Oh! The glory of knits! The little heart crossbones are from Planet Applique.

I love it and what you didn't even have to hem it( I have never used knits, how is that possible).

Haha, tell Jerry you def don't look like a boy. That's funny. I'm jealous of your long hair, and how you have it done and make up on, uh. I never do that anymore. I love Lucy's dress. I really really really need to buy the Sienna pattern.

I think your shirt looks good and it is just so cute. And if your husband thinks you look like a boy you need to take him quickly to the eye dr. I think he may be blind. haha
