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.

Yours,
Miranda.

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.
