And now we fast forward yet another year to 2014, the next in this series is requested so I hit the costume books, a museum or two this time and get creative again. Steampunk #4, know around my house as "It came from Outer Steampunk" is another attempt at another silhouette. In my mind I start listing different aspects for inspiration. Early 1880s, Victorian bodices that attach to a stomacher or have the look of having a stomacher, Viennese drapery, Schiaparelli from the 1930's, (an easy one for me) and chains from the hardware store. The idea of using Venetian lace appliques came like a lighting bolt. I have done so much work with lace with my custom wedding gowns that I knew that was going to work. And View B was a no brainer as just using the corset and overskirt from View A with a couple of changes would work with our goal to use the same pieces from either View.
