When i saw this contests i new i had to join up. this is my first one to enter here, and i know my Sister would realy love her sewing machine back lol.  Any way... I Fell in love with steam punk this year when i did my first Crafster swap, it was the small steam punk swap by Alchamy513, it was then i decided i want to make my own steam punk costume and what better base to start with then Victorian late 1880's Smiley

Sorry about it being on the dress form i took pictures yesterday and i still hadn't finished the hemming and a few seams on the underskirt so please ignore the pins Smiley i shall modify the thread to have a pic of me in the costume after my party tonight Smiley Sorry the pics of me in the costume are with out hte jacket because it sufferd a miner rip and i haven't fixed it yet Smiley

Presenting Steam Punk Victorian!




And a few Detail shots. the different color panels on the jacket was a mistake but i kinda fell in love with it that way Smiley, the back of the jacket needs still to have grommets put in for lacing (i ran out Smiley )



A few Shots with out the Jacket Smiley to show off the bustle



and the Mini Top hat i made to go with the outfit Smiley



I also put little pearl beads on the inside of the bustle ruffs no idea why you can't see them bu i like the idea of them being there.



I hope you like it as much as i do Smiley and thank you all who may vote for me

Did you use patterns?

Thank you soo much!
The Jacket is from Simplicity pattern 2172 http://www.simplicity.com/p-6060-misses-costume.aspx but i alterd it to be split in the back and hang at a point instead.
the rest was just from my own patterns Smiley
