The Steampunk Empire

The Crossroads of the Aether

Naumkeag gardens

Between two rain showers, a walk around the quirky gardens of the Naumkeag "cottage" in the Berkshires (Massachusetts).
Wearing a new summer outfit in white embroidered cotton and a modern black silk blouse as an emergency for not managing to finish the shirtwaist in time. Turn of the century patterns from Ageless Patterns, with sleeves modified from a Truly Victorian pattern. Also a vintage/antique straw boater with a new ribbon, an antique parasol, and an antique brass belt buckle with a new green moiré ribbon.

Actually this particular photo is misleading, the wind if blowing the skirt up here. There is no petticoat, padding, bustle, or hoop to shape it otherwise.
