Just thought I'd put this out there.....

I got interested in Steampunk about 3 years ago.  Wanting 'period' clothes to wear and accessorize but being pretty much dirt poor, I sat my self down in front of the computer for 6 months, broke out my mom's old sewing machine and taught myself to sew.  I now wear Victorian/Edwardian style shirts and trousers about 85% of the time.  Being "Prosperously Bellied" it is more comfortable for me to wear Braces than a belt cinched around me.  And I do get the occasional comment all positive so far.

It is so satisfying sewing something for oneself - with extra kudos for being self taught! Yes, it can be time consuming, but rewarding when you achieve the perfect fit.

Well Done Deadulus, trousers are particularly difficult to fit.
I did it the other way around.  I loved the Victorian look and already had a few pieces and accessories when I discovered that what I was doing fit into something called steampunk.
