Steampunky Office Clothes

Steampunky Office Clothes
The idea behind this combination of a vest and a pencilskirt was simply to sew something suitable for daily use, even suitable for the office, that had a touch of Steampunk to it.

To do so, I decided to use brown needlecord together with two fabrics with fobwatches of slightly different coloring.

Jersey Dress

Jersey Dress
This dress out of soft jersey is quite simple and above all it is comfortable to wear.
It can be worn as a mini dress or as a longshirt over skirts or trousers.

Tea Pot Dress

Tea Pot Dress
Okay, this isn’t exactly nerdy, but for me tea is like coffee is to others. And I find it hard to think about doing all the nerdy things like watching Doctor Who or Star Trek, knitting a Tardis or thinking about my mathematical formulas without a good cup of tea beside me.
So to me this dress is nerdy in some way and therefore in this category ;-)

It is actually a summer dress because of the lightness of the fabric, but I drink tea during all the hottest summers, so this is okay, too ;-)

But I think this will be the closest thing I will ever do of a patchwork-piece. I simply liked the fabrics a lot :-)

Little Octopus Ensemble

Little Octopus Ensemble
This outfit is intended to be Steampunk for every day.
The knee-length cord skirt has a big octopus with a button eye one one side and the simple jersey shirt is decorated with an ocopus on the opposite side, but barely noticeable.

The outfit is complete with the matching brown Jersey Cuffs and the Octopus Earrings :-)

Summer Rose

Summer Rose
All my kitsch-attacks have been concentrated to make this friendly coloured dress… and it is absolutely sweet :-)
The pattern belongs to the period of about 1873, the fabric and the embroidery could have come almost from that time as well.

The polonaise by itself is completed with a green skirt with the same embroidery as on the trimmings of the polonaise. The white petticoat with ther beautiful eyelet embroidery on the hemline and the flouncy embroidered cul-de-Paris are underneath.

The matching accessory are the Summer Rose Bag, the Summer Cameo Choker and the Butterfly Cameo Earrings.

Night Blue Poncho

Night Blue Poncho
It is cuddly and warm, that is my Night Blue Poncho. It is more of a shoulder warmer with its short form, but it performs that task quite well ;-)

In addition there are the matching Night Blue Wrist Warmers.

Godet Flamenco Skirt

Godet Flamenco Skirt
Plain and simple, but with its godets out of the eye-catching dotted red fabric that was left over from the Flamenco Ladybird, this flamenco skirt is perfect for all flamencos where you want to play with the fullness of the skirt ;-)

Cogwheel Winter Dress

Cogwheel Winter Dress
This dress would be a rather simple and understated shift dress… if it had not these cogwheel appliquĂ© ;-)
Therefore this dress is quite every-day-wear with just a touch of steampunk.

Comic Dress

Comic Dress
For some time now I wanted to make something out of comic fabric. Though I did not really like most of the fabrics I found and I was not sure which pattern to use. It had to be a pattern with large pieces.
But at last I did find a pattern I could use.

And here it is, my Comic Dress!
It is quite gossamery and with that a perfect summer dress or dancing dress :-)

Time Lady

Time Lady
Since the pattern, that reminds of dresses of the 1890s, is not really historical correct, I made the dress out of materials, that fit even less into that decade.
The anachronism is perfect with that and the Time Lady is born ;-)

The dress is in three pieces: a skirt, a jacket and a mini-bustle. The last bid is decorated with a little clockface trinket.

I made the Time Lady Tricorne, the Time Lady Handbag and the Time Lady Choker as accessory for the dress. Besides that the long Petticoat goes perfectly with the dress.
