Description

Had a steampunk themed dance to attend this past weekend, so I needed a costume. Made this skirt from a fitted black bed sheet and some white lace curtains, because that was what I had on hand. I used one of the fitted corners to make the bustle. The color combo made it feel a little more French maid-esque than I had hoped, but it was fun to wear and certainly served it’s purpose.

Material Notes

cotton bed sheet, synthetic lace curtain
