I have three projects in the beginning stages. The first one that I will be working on is making myself a velvet cloak. The second is making a Will Turner costume for my husband to wear on Halloween. And lastly, I will be making my son a Captain Jack Sparrow costume for his Halloween costume. I decided the cloak was probably one of the best starting points since it's one giant rectangle. It will give me practice on sewing my seams straight as well as giving me a practice run at putting in a lining. I will start on my husband's costume soon after because I need all the time I can get to put together the whole ensemble. I am saving my son's costume for last since he's only 17 months and growing like a weed!
