I took the last week off to have time for another sewing project and decided to tackle this wonderful victorian era inspired steampunk costume, consisting of jacket, skirt and bustle. I bought dark green dupioni silk in Brussels at Maison des Tissus and beige lace at Maison dore a few weeks ago (I forgot to take the pattern with me then and was so lucky to have bought just enough of both!). The pattern is incredible – it was the first time for me that all patterns parts matched perfectly (and I am always very careful with cutting them out) and the instructions are easy to follow. I decided to shorten the skirt to make the costume a bit more suitable for daily wear and I will probably take it in a bit but I changed nothing else.
