Type of item: Clothing
Style: Victorian / Steampunk, Goth, Rock / Punk
Faux leather, brass studs, thread
What was your inspiration?
This was made for my Fashion Illustration 3 class. I had a Steampunk theme for the whole collection, but I did not want to make this dress garishly so. I used brass studs and leather but kept the silhouette red-carpet.
What are you most proud of?
Sewing the faux leather was a pain and a half using my Singer Disc-O-Matic, but I prevailed with a lot of patience and baby powder (3M tape didn't work)
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Keep going, you shall prevail.
