Steampunk Symposium Military Costume Hat

Here's a closeup of the hat Bella made for her costume.  These are just scrapbook pieces glued to a costume chauffer hat with E-6000.

Stay tuned the next couple days to see the whole outfit worn to the Steampunk Symposium in Cincinnati this past weekend!

Steampunk Symposium Military Costume Jodhpurs

Bella is trying to make a pair of jodhpurs to go with her jacket.  Sorry the picture isn't clear, but I think you will get the idea.

She started with a pair of black pants from Goodwill.  She marked the point she wanted them to start "bowing" out and how tight she wanted them on the lower part of the legs.  From there it was a matter of sewing them and cutting off the excess.

Steampunk Symposium Shoulder Detail: How To

Bella used a strip of faux leather as the base for the shoulder epaulettes.  Under the faux leather is a piece of thin cardboard glued to the fabric piece using fabric glue.  The cardboard is cut slightly smaller.  That left an edge of the faux leather for sewing.  She used a few stitches to hold the faux leather piece in place.  Then, sewed a tighter stitch when sewing the fringe on.

I found these little bits at Archivers this weekend.  Not sure how I will use them yet...maybe on a badge...?
How would you use them?

Dyeing Lace & Trim

Prissy couldn't find the right color of trim for her costume.  So, she bought white trim and used a scrapbook product, called Glimmer Mist, to change the color.  She also added boiling water and 3 Tablespoons of white vinegar.  It's just like dyeing Easter eggs.

Dress Re-Do

Bella is busy sketching a new design to rework a prom formal.  Trying to make it look more Victorian without adding tons of weight.  Here's the 1st rough draft showing the back of the dress.
