Summer Means it's Costume Time!

Yay! It's finally time to take all those ideas that I've been scetching and translate them into fabric! First off is my Victorian/Steampunk plan, the fabric is an awesome brocade that came to me in a pile of donated fabric pieces. The skirt will be made from some maroon curtains I dumpster dived, while saves me enough money to buy corduroy for a bolero.
It's nearly impossible to find true steel boning in this town, so I use spiral boning and heavy double seams for support. The back laces up, and the sides will lace too as soon as I get more grommets. Now I just need the super secret tech to avoid falling out of it while riding my bike...
