  1. I think you need to put on both dress and top, to give us an idea what it would look like. Especially when it comes to the trim. I like the idea of the same trim at the top as on the bottom, but maybe just an element, i.e. just the sequin strip, is enough? That might be. So maybe going for simple (just sequin) and the buttons you first bought for the project? I think they look great, but it would be easier to choose it we saw a picture or two with you inside the top. *hint, hint*

      1. But there’s no trim there… I have been using my imagination though, and I wonder what is the effect you’re aiming for? Iirc people back then weren’t afraid of going all out, and so I think you should go for a full “clownish” outfit, to use your own words. I think you can carry it off. Actually I think both you and the outfit are able to do so. *nods*

  2. Hello Fairy, I have finally made it into blogland! Having finished my treatment and all that stuff, I have come to learn all about steampunk sewing and who better than from our very own Missy (I am thinking Dr Who here, surely one of the firstly steampunk programmes?). As always I have nothing of any use to add to the sewing comments whatever but I like a good read and inspiration. Xxx.

    1. HELLO DOLLY! [cue song and dance routine] Pull up a chair, pour a drinkypoo, and join in the chit chat. Mock, advise, suggest, and feel jealous of my fab pith helmet! Great to ‘see’ you again x

  3. I like both trims and both sets of buttons so what about big trim, small buttons or small trim and big buttons. Don’t think they look ‘clownish’ but you have a better idea being able to see everything ‘in the flesh’.

    1. It’s still only pinned on- I was going to stitch it last night but got thoroughly distracted by the buttonholer and lemon drizzle cake. I think I’m going with bigger trim to match the skirt, and the smaller but flashier buttons. Fingers crossed! [There may be rosettes as well now I’ve cracked that…]
