Momma has finally decided upon her own steampunk ensemble!
Using Simplicity Pattern #1558 as a basis, she plans to make the blouse with Tea-Dyed Muslin, and the skirt with two Tim Holtz Eclectic Elements fabrics: Stamps Neutral (using the reverse side) and Photo Card Multi. The blouse and skirt will both be 100 percent cotton which will make them both cool and washable.
How disgustingly practical!
Her character? Captain Nellie Bligh - a composite of both Nellie Bly and Captain Bligh.
What do you think?
