That is stunning, and it fits you perfectly. You are an inspiration!  Smiley

Thanks for all the lovely comments!  Smiley

I got the fabric from J&O Fabrics: http://www.jandofabrics.com/

I'm very impressed with their service - it only took the fabric about a week to get to me in the UK from the US, and their shipping charges are very reasonable too.

A convention I went to recently had the Saturday night theme of Marvel vs DC, so I decided I needed to make myself a new dress:

And an action shot:

This is amazing! I love all the details you have put in to it, and your sewing is incredibly neat - that looks better than a lot of professionally made hoodies  Smiley

Thanks for all your lovely comments!

The front is closed using swing hooks, and the back has lacing loops. Here is a photo of the corset in progress which shows these:

I made this outfit for a Vampire Ball I went to. The skirt and jacket are from the Simplicity 2172 pattern, and the corset is from the Laughing Moon Dore pattern.

Hi mangajude,

It did take me quite a while to finish it, but that's because I was being lazy, and hate doing hand sewing! It's a reasonably straight-forward pattern, although sewing the fabric for the frills was a complete PITA, which is why I put off finishing it for a while.

You might want to consider adding shoulder pads too - I put mine in before I completely sewed the lining to the main fabric, so they are in between the two layers. Otherwise I felt the shoulders just didn't sit right. I guess this depends on what fabric you are using though.

Last weekend, I started on the corset I'm making to go with it, but I've only got three weeks now before the Vampire Ball! I'll post more pictures of the completed outfit after that - I'll try to get some decent pictures taken too.

This is fantastic! I'm planning on making my own bras soon, and hope that mine turn out half as good as yours!

Thanks everyone for the lovely comments, and I've never been pinned before!!

I will post pictures of the completed outfit after the ball - hopefully I can get someone who is a bit better at photography to take a few photos.

I finally got round to finishing my Steampunk Jacket and Skirt, using Simplicity pattern 2172 and fabric from Abakhan.

I still need to make a corset to go with it, and I'm not sure if I'll need an underskirt with it.

I intend to wear it to a Vampire Ball later this year.
