This is a steampunk variation on a 18th century women's half-redingote, and a de-stash project. These were a bunch of fabrics I picked up because they were shiny (and leftover high-quality velour, which I'm hoping comes off as velvet-like in this piece).


 Velour Faux-Velvet bodice, red taffeta with black floral motif flock, cuffs and lining in silver and black plaid taffeta, black bias tape edging.


And my steampunk utility belt in black suedecloth with brass grommets and nifty brass buckle, with aetheray gun and compass.


Walmart find: These neat cut-out buttons.


I found this crossbow 'toy' online and couldn't resist. I got to play with my new woodburner and decorated it for extra fun. And wrapped the handle in leftover faux leather. It's actually quite powerful for a toy. You could poke someone's eye out, for sure!

At first, I thought you were in a Little Red Riding Hood costume. Well, this one the wolf would not mess with!
Great job.
