This past year my daughter was a pirate in a school production. After scouring the thrift stores we could not find an appropriate skirt. So we designed one... and a spare that was used by another pirate.


  • Fabric -- Use a medium-weight double knit fabric. (The amount of fabric you will need will depend on the size of your pattern piece. Lay yard sticks on the floor, and the pattern piece to determine how much you will need)
  • 1" wide elastic - fit to waist plus overlap to secure.
  • Thread
  • Sewing machine
  • Optional: Trim and extra fabric for a waist band sash
  • Pattern Piece (Directions below) - use newspaper or gift wrapping paper to create an inexpensive pattern
