So I recently got the butterick patter shown here ( http://butterick.mccall.com/b4954-products-5301.php?page_id=385 ) and I'm having some problems getting it to look steampunk. I know what I want to have a aristocrat steam punk girl but I want it to look more steam punk then Victorian so if anyone could help me put then that would be awesome(=

In my opinion, the way to steampunk that would be in all the accessories you would put with it. I'm currently using that same pattern for the fitted skirt with the flare, but not for steampunk. But a lot of times steampunk really is the accessories you choose to go with the outfit. Just imagine what you think an aristocratic girl would carry or have attached to her outfit that would fall into the lines of steampunk but still be believable.
