This is exceptionally well done dear!  Your stitching looks great, expert or not.  I wish my students put half as much care into their stitching for pay, as you did for fun. 
And on a side note, your great-grandmother's purse is fabulous!  It is clearly very old, and it appears to be leather,so I thought I'd mention that you may wish to treat it with a leather cleaner to clean it up a bit, and then a leather oil/conditioner to keep it nice and supple so you can use it for years to come.  You can find those products at a *good* shoe store (not like Payless), or from a cobbler.  Or from somewhere like Manhattan Wardrobe Supply. 
Again, wonderful job my steampunky friend!

OMG, I'm in the featured...thanks! Smiley

@jennieingram, thanks for the advice!  I did look into getting the purse cleaned up and will take your suggestions and use them very soon! Smiley

@zowiewoahie - yes, I was able to move, surprisingly well, actually!  Well, I probably couldn't pick up anything off the floor... Smiley

Again, I'd like to say that I really really enjoyed doing this costume and am so glad I did it.  Thanks for all your wonderful comments.

Wow!!!  What an amazing outfit!  I would never think to take on such a large project.  Yours is fabulous, and inspiring, and maybe someday I'll make an outfit with so many pieces!  Wow.

This is absolutely stunning. All your work is very detailed and it makes all the difference. I hope there are more events you can wear this to.
