Have to have a hood!

No historically accurate base pattern here ;-) It's all me, but I think the ruffles and lace create at least a little of the appropriate effect. It's two pieces: the dress and a bustle skirt. Same fabric I had used for my other costume, so that it would match my hat... :-p

The gang (for Steampunk Bocce, this time round, since rain was imminent due to Irene and my cardboard based wickets would melt). My roommate (girl on far left) made her vest day of... Our friend (second from right/left of me) made her bustier and jacket (with a little assistance from me). The bustier is this delicious stripe upholstery weight fabric I had. They're from the steampunk simplicity pattern (2172) except we altered the jacket to be shorter in the sidefront and have tails in the back.

Love this! I would like to try the Simplicity pattern you mentioned some day. I'm always buying up the interesting patterns, now I just need to find the time to sew!

Very cool! I love your projects. So much steampunk-y goodness!

Brilliant! I really need to fix mine (a violent shade of purple with an indigo bustier), and pull up the skirts, since my petticoats got trashed.
