1950s or Victorian? You decide.

October 10, 2012

Earlier this month I had an occasion that required a witch’s costume.  So I took the glamourous highroad and sewed up a  jacket out of a vintage Halloween novelty print.  It’s one part 1950s (if you base it on the pattern I used and full crinoline skirt), one part Victorian (if you consider the frou-frou lace cuffs and collar), and one part Steampunk (if you consider the amount of bosom that’s featured).   I fear my sewing will never be the same.  More pics and details at my blog.
