DIY Steampunk/Victorian Skirt

So, I don't know how many of the fans of this blog are also into steampunk, and of those how many like sewing and costuming, but, I saw this pattern for a simple faux-bustled skirt today and pretty much had to share it. My understanding from chatting with an acquaintance who's made it is that it really is as easy as it looks.

I haven't figured out yet how to work my sewing machine with a broken right foot, but as soon as I do (and find just the right fabric) I'd like to give this a try. Why? Well doesn't every girl need a bustled skirt in her wardrobe?

Shut up. Every girl needs that. It's true.

Stop looking at me like that.

Full pattern and instructions from the blog can be found here.


  1. *raises hand as fan of the blog AND fan of steampunk*

    My goodness. I need to give this a try. Thanks for posting it! :)

  2. It was my right foot that was broken both times as well... Using the left foot is tricky but it can be done. ;]

  3. I am a fan of both the blog and steampunk as well. And yes, every girl needs a bustled skirt in her wardrobe! Anyone who says otherwise is just plain wrong. Thanks for the awesome post!
