Steampunkin’ into 2013
Christmas has come and gone, well… almost, (Happy Epiphany ) and I’ve been a been a bit lax about working on my coat-making tutorials during the holidays. I’m finding that composing a tutorial is kind of like making the coat twice and not all that exhilarating especially after the fact. 🙂 I may write more later… if the mood strikes me, but for now I am happy to publish a photo my son took on Christmas Eve of me in my new coat. His photos were much better than the ones I took,and I had to wait for him to send me copies, thus the delay in publishing.
I am very pleased with the result of my labor and especially happy with the alteration I made to the collar shape. The gray and silver have a certain refined-steampunk-Prussian military look that I find rather fun. It was an unexpected result, but it works for me!
