This is my new Victorian inspired ensemble to wear to the 2011 Steampunks World Fair, and wherever I wish Smiley.  I drafted the pattern for the fishtail skirt and bolero jacket myself Smiley  The skirt is surprisingly easy to make, but I had to take it in about 3 times since 1)my dress dummy is broken and has no hips lol and 2)I had no one to help me mark the dress while it was on.

I am VERY proud on how this turned out! <3





my favorite part is the back! I love my bow and ruffles

Working a sewing machine is harder to than driving a JCB. No, really.

It looks amazing! Those ruffles at the back are great! And the fabric is beautiful, too.
