Outfit Breakdown:

-Blouse: I made a few years ago out of an old bedsheet for a casual steampunk outfit
-Fingerless Gloves: made from quilter's cotton to go with my first steampunk outfit a number of years ago.
-Hat: from my Steampunk Birthday Party outfit, only trimmed out with red instead of purple.
-Neck Decoration: Strip of red lace.
-Skirt: Quilter's Cotton, my bustle skirt design
-Vest: Sage-ish stripe Upholestry fabric, brass buckles, laces up sides with ribbon through brass eyelets, my Mrs. Fitzsimmon's Supportive design
-Nylons: Dollar Tree! They of course, ripped the moment I put them on, but that's okay for steampunk style...
-Boots: Funtasma Victorian, costume-quality boot (my first... yes, I said first, as in I have three pairs of Victorian Style boots (one of which is a very nice leather pair) even though I don't yet have decent shoes to wear to work everyday for the winter...)
-Umbrella: Black acrylic Painters' Pen (love these!), free-handed.  (I used to do more 'art' than 'craft', primarily drawing and painting, but now I definitely sew more than I delve into fine arts, but it's nice once-in-a-while to bust out the artsy skills.)
