Description

I made this Steampunk costume for my sister so that we could go as a theme (I wore Simplicity 2172). I chose this pattern for my sister because the jacket could be worn later with a skinny t-shirt and jeans for a night out on the town. This dress is actually not that tough, but because I don’t have a serger, I had to finish ALL of the ruffle edges with a double zig-zag stitch. Even if you have a serger for that part, it’s going to take you a LONG time. Build in lots of construction time for this dress — you’ll be glad you did!

Material Notes

I used a satin-backed taffeta and it produced a really nice weight without being too heavy. Just realize that most of the charm comes from the ruffles and they all have to edge finished before you ruffle them and construct the skirt and bustle elements. You have to purchase a lot of yardage — be forewarned!
