Steampunk Piratecrew vest by ItsBugArt Steampunk Piratecrew vest by ItsBugArt
How does one keep up with one's pirate crew while engaged in the act of boarding a vessel? How does the discriminating airship captain tell friend from foe while the bullets are flying? Why, by having the crew sew pirate "badges" to their gear of course! And what, one may ask, are the pieces of silk and wool sewn to the vest back, if not souvenirs commemorating previous conquests!

Applique on a wool & acetate suit vest.

Nice! I have a weakspot for patchwork and mixed patterns. The pirate patch is the crowning touch on this here vest. It would be nice to have a photograph of the vest from the front as well. =D

Wish granted! Glad you like the vest. I sort of, kind of want to add some type of "gizmos" to the front (i.e. metal rings) but haven't found the right bits.

Wow, that's quite wonderful so far. I like the repetition of the pirate symbol!

Actually I really like how the stitching makes the inside back part of the vest look embroidered! :XD:
I know your struggle for finding the the right pieces. I actually stumbled upon this vest in hopes of finding inspiration for a vest I'm currently working on. Good luck on it's completion!

Thanks! My airship pirate captain is the spiritual successor to Black Sam Bellamy and the last crew of the Whydah! [link] She's from a 19th century South Carolina that developed after the Indians won the Yamassee War (1715-17) [link] and the Stono Rebellion (1739) [link] was successful.
