No, the cogs were made by painting them on with the aid of a freezer paper stencil. I cut out the cog shapes with a craft knife and painted on the reverse side, allowing it to bleed through to create the "distresssed" look on the side showing. The other side is lined so you can't see the side I painted on.

I made the skirt its own thread on the clothing board here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=378602.0

Wowzah, I really like the skirts so far!

The steampunk skirt's colors are really nice and I like how you added the draw string in the front Cheesy

The floral skirt's pattern(both in design and print) are lovely! What kind of fabric is it made out of?

Sorry, missed this one! The fabric is a sort of drapey mesh, definitely synthetic. It's see-through so the skirt has some nude lining fabric. I really liked the fabric and actually bought the fabric a few years ago, before those kinds of flowers were so popular. Psychic! Tongue

Oh my gosh. I went to check my mailbox yesterday, and what was inside?


Billy's excited to find out, too!



I opened the box, and...

What's this?? Satin? I have an irrevocable love for satin!
What's even better is the gorgeous chocolate brown, and the deep teal (it's photographing bluer than it is). They look so beautiful together, so classy, so amazing!


I had to try it on my dressform.

See those drapey folds? That gathering center band? That color blocking!



And what about the back?

It's like a chocolate wedding cake! See the exactly even pleats, the neat center back panel, and don't even get me started about that perfectly inset, immaculate little zipper.


I had to try it on (it even matched my outfit--psychic!)

And see, I even cleaned my room for you all. All that's left are the presents... Lots and lots of presents.


You can note the figure-hugging feminine form, the way the waistband dips at center front to make anyone more hour-glassy, and the general amazingness. 

Rainysunshine789, you need to set up an etsy shop for exclusive customers like me who will pay a million dollars for skirts like this. (Note: please wait until I am a millionaire first.)

I love it, thank you!

I'm so glad you like it, it fits, etc!  I know it looks funny just sitting there, but it's made to be worn!  It looks like it fits on you just perfect.  I'm glad you appreciate all the little details.  They were a lot of work, but it was fun and totally worth it since you seem to love it.

It does look a little funny on the floor, but definitely made to be worn - looks very flattering!!
