I have yet to read it but there is a book recently out (I believe) called Cinder, and as far as I can tell it's a steam punk retelling of Cinderella. But I haven't read it so I'm not sure how applicable it is to your costume.
Tasks to complete:
I've finally got my sewing machine!
Finish Tsipi - 1950's day dress with flowers actually now - 50%
Belle's provincial blue dress - for myself - started.
Kida - for my sister
Snow White - for myself
