Bespoke & Upcycled Steampunk Clothing by Haunted Summer

Profile Information

Introduction
Hello! I'm Allegra.

I am the woman behind upcycled and bespoke steampunk clothing business Haunted Summer (which you can read about below), and I am also an editor for SteamPunk Magazine.

At the moment, I am working to developing 'dreampunk': What steampunk would look like a century earlier, in the hands of the Romantic poets.

Hello, and welcome to Haunted Summer!

 

Like it says up there, I'm Allegra and I make steampunk clothing. Some of what I make is bespoke--drawing on historical patterns and designs and combining them with modern fabrics, sewing and embroidery methods. The other half of what I make is upcycled, which is to say that it's found in charity shops and in other places where it is likely to have been discarded. I take these things home, and give them a new lease of life with embroidery, adding lace and other trims, and otherwise re-sculpting them. 

 

A lot of my work is focused on this idea of dreampunk, so you will find a lot of my pieces focus on very early industrial technology like the hot air balloons of Pilâtre de Rozier and the Montgolfier brothers, and the steam engines developed by Richard Trevithick. 

 

I love creating custom work and pieces to order, and am happy to replicate any of my designs on different types, colours and sizes of clothing, or even on accessories. Just drop me a line through here, or through my shop on Etsy if you would like to discuss something specific with me!
