Howdy folks.

I thought it might be interesting to do a WIP thread on one of my new costumes. Most of my handmade stuff goes to my family BUT THIS ONE IS ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL MINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I planned it originally just as a steampunk type dress to wear to con's, but was inspired to do my own little omage to Gary Oldman as Dracula.

Starting the pattern with a muslin mock-up this weekend. I am by no means a seamstress so this may be interesting :)

Here is the pattern (I plan on changing several undesirable issues with it) and here is the picture of Oldman I am basing my colors and fabrics off of. Accessories to come later.

Would love to hear anyone's thoughts/ suggestions, etc.

Matrixmom thanks. I've consulted a few friends who are more veteran sewers so I am hoping I have enough guidance to pull through. :)

I have to say I agree can't stand the ruffles at all. It looks hokey. I am going to leave that bit off, and will leave it plain if I can't add maybe a lapel or a fur collar instead.
