Scarlett’s Gone Steampunk Teaser

I found these gorgeous green moire curtains at the thrift store for $24. This much good quality fabric would easily cost over $150 at the fabric store.  The green reminds me of Scarlett Ohara’s green drapes gown in Gone With The Wind. So, this dress is called Scarlett’s Gone Steampunk.
 There are four 92″ panels with gold tassels along one side. They’re lined in white cotton. Then there are 3 huge triangular window scarves that are lined in deep pink moire with the gold tassels along 2 edges. Finally, there were a couple funny little rectangular pieces that could’ve been tie backs? I’m planning on making myself another Steampunk dress out of it. My goal is to have it finished by the first of November so I can wear it to a convention. We’ll see.
 Here’s a sneak peek at some of the skirt details….
