As an early tester for this pattern, I loved making this skirt and blouse in a steampunk style. As always with Crafty Lil Turkey patterns, the instructions were well written with pictures for added clarity. My favorite part of this pattern is the cute bustley ruffles on the back of the skirt … I added lace to the riffles to make them stand out even more. I already have some ideas for other ways to make this cute outfit!
