Clockwork couture

Cher of Sew Fun Doll Clothes is busy creating a fun new outfit for my darling Clementine.

The outfit starts with a lace up bolero jacket in golden tan twill lined with gold shantung. It features a Steampunk Gunslinger embroidery design from Urban Threads on the back; pistols border embroidery (also from Urban Threads) on the lower sleeves; a gear with brown suede bow above the peplum ruffle in the back; and brass eyelets laced with brown suede cord in the front opening.

A doll can get pretty hot fighting crime in the Wild West, so Cher's doll is wearing a sleeveless camisole of black muslin under her coat. It has feminine ruffles around the neckline and waist; and it buttons in the front with four small black buttons (no velcro to snag your doll's hair!).

Finishing the outfit will be a rust riding skirt - linen trousers covered with an embroidered skirt front (because adventurous girls don't do their time traveling side saddle!). This skirt also features an Urban Threads embroidery design - a pocketwatch in gold, cream, and antique brass embroidered on the left front side; the right front skirt panel is held in place with brass fasteners attached to three sets of brass eyelets. The narrow front waistband is flat; the back waistband has encased elastic.

Clementine and I shall be sooo fashionable at the second Wild Wild West Steampunk Convention in March1
