Steampunk seamstress - Steamstress costume by Rachel de Kooker with a mobile sewing table (pushed by the assistant) consisting of an antique Gritzer Durlach sewing machine, oil lamp, jars with haberdashy and a fabric stash below the vintage wooden working table. Photo is taken at Elfia 2014. The skirt and jacket are made with Truly Victorian patterns, making it indeed truly Victorian (just had to make that joke).

This picture of the Victorian House was the best of show and it so deserved it. Done in 1/2" squares it was a reproduction of a cross stitch pattern! And the quilting was over the moon. It was stunning.
