    Love the look of Steampunk!!! Also like the fact that you were able to reuse old pants. The mini abacus just makes it perfect.

    Love this. Looks amazing! I saw the seams on the photo of the back and knew you used old pants…because I do that myself. Love the look the old seams give.

      A little if you try to do it “the blind way” with the buttons at the back, but if you button it up with the buttons on the front and then turn the collar, no problem! :)

      Here’s what wikipedia says : “Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction, alternate history, and speculative fiction (…). Specifically, steampunk involves an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century and often Victorian era Britain—that incorporates prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy.”

      Get hold of the Japanese anime film ’Howl’s Moving Castle’ by Studio Ghibli – that’s a good example of the steampunk imagination!

      Yeah MientjiB’s right! ^^ “Howl’s moving catsle” is a great exemple! You have “Steamboy” and “League of the extraordinary gentlemen”, very steampunk too!

      Well, I’m working on that. Maybe a simple blouse with a high waist victorian skirt and a “polonaise” vest… mmm…

      It’s victorian with a bit of SF military… in a way.
