This was going to be my Halloween costume last fall, but then I had my carpal tunnel, etc. issues and couldn't sew for several months. Since I had all of the supplies, anyway, decided to make this since I'm back to sewing. Actually, it's been basically finished for about a month. I just kept putting off the last couple of things and getting dressed up to take photos.
This Costume Consists of the Following Pieces:
-White Button-Down Shirt
-White Ruched Petticoat in Embroidered/Appliqued Fabric
-Blue Swirl Flock Taffeta Bustle Skirt with Straps in front and Bow in back
-Blue Swirl Flock Taffeta Harness Vest
-Blue Swirl Flock Taffeta Bow on Clip
There's Also a necklace with Black on White Rose Cameo, but you can't see it in most of the photos because it refused to stay outside of the blouse. Also, Hollow Book & Altered/Steampunked Nerf Gun. And I have a pair of blue-tinted goggles (finally splurged on a new pair, since I've been using the same DIY ones from the first steampunk costume I made), which of course I forgot to don for these photos.
