5.0 out of 5 stars Get in there and give it a go! 9 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback
At first sight getting the steampunk look can seem really complicated but this book has very clear instructions on how to make a range of clothing and accessories using really easy techniques and re-introducing us to the decorative buttons and closures that we don't see so much of these days. But, a quick Google search and there they are just waiting for you, and not too expensive either! So jump in! You'll be so proud of your creations - and much cheaper than pre-made items!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book 12 Jun 2013
By Hare
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Wanted a book to inspire me to create steampunk clothing from everyday wear, and this does the trick. Also projects to make a mini fascinator, a small bag and a bodice as well as converting clothes. Would recommend to anyone interested in steampunk who's not a whizz with a sewing machine!
