As I mentioned in the previous post on the Steampunk Holiday ensemble, I finished the skirt about a week ago. It was a very simple pattern - front, back, lower flounce and a waistband.
I have it sitting a little low in today's photos, so I'll have to adjust that. But, it doesn't get in the way when I walk.
It looks great when walking, too...gets narrow at the knee and the fishtail flares.
It's made from Vogue 7698. I made no alterations except omitting the lining.
I added the knife pleated satin and velvet trim around the top of the fishtail flare. It's just enough to accent the drape of the fabric.
I think a proper steampunk ensemble is supposed to involve tall lace-up boots, but I didn't have time to shop for those. Instead, I'll be wearing these...Aerosoles Minor Role. :D
Man, I wish I knew how to sew.
Wowee Zowee that is a sexy, satiny, shiny just lovely skirt! You are so talented. Thank you so much for sharing the construction and designing of your outfit. I adore those shoes too by the way and I think they are nicely steampunk!
Thank you so much!
