Take it away ... Theresa!
So, as this steamy design tale goes, another year goes by, another Steampunk pattern requested. This was perhaps the most difficult for me to design in this series. My mother's health was in severe decline and as her main caretaker, I was pretty emotionally drained. I had sent in some designs, but Simplicity didn't think they would go and so back to the drawing board I went. Betsy had sent me a couple of starter ideas and I finally got inspired to go in a kind of military direction on one view (Also a bit of Adam and the Ants from the 1980's) , and more of a romantic direction on the other.
