Blue & Gray: steampunk ensemble
I surprised my client with an additional bustle-like drape & optional bow (not pictured) for her ensemble. The jacket can be worn with or without the additional back drape. She picked a hat out of my stash and altered it while I worked on the finishing touches on the outfit tonight. I’m so excited to see her wear it at Baycon!
Additional interior shots:
Working with small pieces of blue left over from another project I was able to fully line the jacket interior (sans sleeves) by creatively piecing it. I placed a portion on the bias creating some interest to the shaping and keeping the piecing symmetrical side to side. Re-use of smaller pieces allowed for a novel lining design as well as being economical! It takes a lot of work to extensively piece things but when you have a limited supply of fabric it is well worth the time.
I’ll share more photos once the outfit makes it debut at Baycon which is coming up surprisingly fast. Anyone going?
This is absolutely gorgeous! I can’t wait to see pictures of the outfit on a person! The pieces lining is so clever, and are those tail pockets?
Amazing work! Do you have any full frontal photos? I would love to see the full ensemble!
Hopefully we will be doing a photoshoot shortly. I’ll have plenty of full frontal photos then :)
