This is a Steampunk Halloween Costume for my granddaughter. We decided to make it from the Simplicity pattern # 2172. The pattern has a floor length coat & skirt, but she wanted them to be knee length. This was a difficult project for me, but I got it done. There will be a Halloween Party at her home and I can’t wait to hear the comments people will make when she tells her friends that her grandmother made it especially for her.
I used seven yards of satin material for the skirt and coat and seven yards for the lining. The bustier took one yard of fabric and one yard for the lining and a 12" separating zipper for the bustier. The coat has 4 1" buttons and 2 yards of ribbon for the back loops.
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
