I've been steampunking pretty hardcore lately, and lovin' it! Here's the latest...

Susie the Tinkerer


Underdress in brown and white stripe knit. And brown twill utility belt with pouch. Prop wrench.


Smock in dark brown bottomweight with white floral embroidered motif, lined with brown twill, cargo pockets.

Smock laces down the sides through large brass grommets.


Coveralls! What tinkerer would be without a pair of coveralls?!

Brown twill one-piece coveralls. Detachable sleeves. Waist cinches with tie threaded through grommets. Asymmetrical double-breasted bodice that closes with ties and grommets. Cargo pockets on pant legs. Small pockets on right sleeve and right chest. Hood. Hand-painted gear motif on back (easily done with acrylic painter's pens. highly recommend these babies. I love them for so many projects!).


PS Did you see the snowflakes in the various photos?! Can't wait for spring to finally, well...spring!

Love, love, love it!  You look especially good in the stripy dress.

I love the dress and smock the most, but everything looks really amazing and well-made!!  Beautiful work.
