Fearful Symmetry: Chapter Two

Current Work

Have just finished a walking skirt (Folkwear 209) in brown; am trying to decide whether to add decorative embroidery somewhere along the hem or not.

 

Next piece is a corset, in brown.  It will be based on Simplicity 2890, though I am going to modify it so that it has a lining. 

 

After that, I need to figure out a shirt - maybe I should attempt making one? - and locate a good hat.  Something like a low top hat (riding hat?) with a veil could be fun.  Or a…

When you think of tinkerers, you may think of steampunk. And that would be a good thing, because David Malki (of Wondermark fame) is posting…

Railroad!

Monday morning is here and with it comes the second half of chapter seven. http://steampunktrain.blogspot.com/ This week: Dodger tries to question the dying men, only to lose his captive audience to a curious effect. Is that bread I smell? Could be. Then again, could be the smell of super science gone wrong. All aboard the Railroad! WOO! WOO!
