Steampunk Outfit (This'll make you laugh)

Postby JabberJabber » Sun Mar 30, 2014 8:51 am

So, I'm going to a Victoriana/Steampunk event in November and need something suitable to wear. I don't do much sewing but can follow a pattern and use my machine so I'm going to be attempting something like this!

I've now got a pre event party in 4 weeks so I need costumery froth asap. I've cut out the pattern and cut out the skirt using old material for a test run.

Good thing I've got lots of floor space!

@JabberJabber any more news with this? Have you actually bought the pattern or the material? What colour are you going to do? What are you going to wear on top? What exactly is a Victoriana/Spteampunk event :nosey: :giggle: ?

Ok, so now I have a cunning plan...

I've bought this pattern and have some navy blue 'wool' from a friend. I'll be buying a blouse to go with it and might make a cape.

We also have a ball on the Saturday night but I'll be buying a dress for that.
