I have a crush on Oona, and her cowl dress “here”: http://oonaballoona.blogspot.com/2011/04/i-chi-go-girl.html, so I copied it. I dreamed of this weird steampunk-ish but wearable bustle dress/skirt for awhile, and decided to merge them together. I can try and take better pics later but wanted to put it up because it’s fun and I’m glad to have finished something I actually like because I’m brand new to sewing for myself. Thanks to ichogogirl for the free pattern
Rayon jersey with sparkle pinstripes from fabric.com, plus random jersey, lace, mesh scraps for the bustle.
