Steampunk Gypsy/Peasant Dress (Finished)

 I know, not much different than the In-Progress version... When we last checked in, I was debating whether I wished to finish it with pockets, patches or both. I was erring toward 'both' until I realized the stretchy nature of the jersey would prevent successful alignment of stripes for the pockets. And that would just be entirely unacceptable. Plus, this dress works great as a layer, and the pockets may spoil the lines of whatever would be worn with the dress, or be blocked off/inaccessible at any rate.

So I opted for patches in nifty gear and clock face fabric. A little fusible web to stick them in place and some brown embroidery floss for visual effect...
