From 2012-04-05 Steampunk Dress
A little while ago I entered the giveaway on Simple Simon and Co.'s blog. It was for a child dress form from Mannequin Hub. And to my astonishment I won! I could think of no better way to show off my new toy then to introduce my Steam punk outfits for Lizzy and Charles. I decided to make Lizzy''s dress based on a few tutorials I found on pinterest a while back. The basis for the dress was made by wonderful Lady named Cami. Check out her blog to see the original. I tweaked it a bit by making the skirt separate to add more volume

and then I used these t-shirt flowers from Shannon's blog to embellish the neckline.

 I loved how it turned out. The only drawback is that the skirt is quite heavy, but Lizzy wore it all day, so I'd say that it is a success! Here's the back view:

And now for Charles! I wanted to do a little news boy look so Daniel found this great jumper that I promtly cut up and made into a vest and knicker combo and then added a bow tie for fun. The tie came out a little large, but I liked the look.

So this is my steam punked children's line. I had a blast making them and my kids seem to like wearing them.  I'd call that a win-win!
