Costume Version 1

So I had two parties to go to and didn't want to do the same exact thing for both. I used the bustle and skirt last night and made myself up as a Steampunk. It was fun. A person who really dresses steampunk probably would have called me a poser, do people still use that term??? Oh well, it was fun anyways.

I am sewing too. I got up my courage and cut out my leather jacket. I'm surprised by how fun leather has been to work on. I have some in-progress pictures I can post later. I'm at the stage to either put in the zipper or attach the sleeves and I haven't had any quiet time to sit down and do it. There's no undoing what you do to leather. The Oolong dress is hanging and I haven't had the gumption to hem it yet. As soon as the leather jacket is done I'll finish the dress up.

Wow! A leather jacket, that does sounds ambitious. I can't wait to see it and hear your insights on the process.
