DUDE!  If you're not an expert seamstress, then who is??  Those pleats on the shirt outta that sheer fabric look painfully annoying to do, an anyone who does teeny tiny knife pleats around the hem of a skirt has got mad skillz!    The attention to detail & fine-ness of the work is so impressive. You may be self-taught, or unpaid for your work, but by no means inexpert.  Kudos!

@she goes la  HA!  I actually love my day job.  I'm a freelance violinist and teacher.  Who couldn't love doing that? Sewing's just a hobby. 

@toomuchstuff  yes, the pleats on the shirt were crazy hard.  I don't know what the heck I was thinking.  I tend to do that...I get an idea in my head and think, "that won't be too hard!" and then end up knee deep in fabric.  But, a lot of the time, it's a good thing because if I thought it was hard, I would never do it. 

@embercostumer Thank you!  But, I have to give full credit to the corset pattern.  Seriously, it's awesome.

"Im not an expert seamstress for sure, but I can try to answer questions if there are any!"

Well, I think you ARE an expert, as this project took some major skill!  I'm so impressed - I love every piece.  Congrats on a job well done!

Nothing wrong with vintage underware I say! Thanks for all the pattern links.  I see myself falling down a slippery slope of slopers and pattern drafting!

Love your take on steampunk! I wasn't all that keen on the gears and goggles theme for my potential upcoming costume requirement--thank you for your insight into potential ways around the cliched gears and gadgets!
