This is steampunk-inspired skirt is one of my favorite creations! I took three mens’ dress shirts, lopped off the tops (both were ruined), sewed them together at the “waist” and then gathered a little to give shape. It’s not 100% done but this gives you an idea of what I did.
Just a few of the details:
I added grommets to the back so the closure will lacing like this.
I also did a lot of tucking and gathering to give off the layered/bustled look.
Embellishment is still needed but it’s a solid base for a versatile steampunk-inspired look.
