Adaptation of 18th style women's half-redingote.
DESTASH! Skirt in flock, bodice in red velour (to imitate velvet), cuffs and lining in silver and black plaid taffeta (black lining in bodice).
PURCHASED buttons, black bias tape.
Also wearing my steampunk 'utility' belt, black leggings, Victorian boots (I thought I had some pirate-y ones to go better with the inspirational time period, but no go.)
Crossbow: Cheap bamboo 'toy' from Black Bear Haversack, design added with my new woodburner :-) Handle wrapped in faux leather. WARNING: much more powerful than a 'toy' should be. Whilst playing with this upon first receiving it in the mail, I accidentally put a hole in my roommates nice poster. (Rubber tipped bolts = fail.)
