My 1860s inspired Steampunk Ballgown is finished. Grey pinstripe cotton, light brown silk, dark brown trim and grey satin ribbon lacing in the back. The bodice is reinforced with coutil and steel boning and it is lined with ivory cotton. I also made a matching hair decoration with a pearl cabochon, brass chains and a large vintage ostrich plume.
I’ve been very productive and sorted through all my fabrics and ribbons for the past two days and here is some proof! A bunch of my ribbons (Not all, I have more!) rolled up and neatly pinned in place. I think it looks rather pretty actually and it makes it a lot easier to find the right ribbon in my hat making.
