The Trashiest Skirt Ever (tm)

Fabric: Furry leopard print from the remnants at JoAnn's
Pattern: Draped by me

When I saw the remnant of the fuzzy leopard print stuff, I knew it was for Gianna - a Jersey Girl I play in oWBN Sabbat. I quickly cut it out in this lovely pencil skirt shape, but I was unsure of what to do with the closure. I hate zippers, and buttons weren't really an option. I settled on the trashiest thing I could think of: eyelets!

Take a look over at for more pictures.

A Steampunk Suit

January 2010

Fabric: Synthetic brown and gold Sari bought off e-bay
Pattern: Based on TV four-gore skirt pattern, modified to be worn without a bustle, and a doublet-esque bodice draped by me.

I am still not entirely sure where I was going with this or what I was doing, but it seemed like a good idea at the time. At one point I had an idea to go to a rennaissance faire dressed as a neo-victorian time traveller who was aiming for the actual renaissance and missed. Call it boredom, call it distraction - but certainly don't call it period.
