All done, and in time for Weekend at The Asylum in Lincoln. The key will be picked up there and I shall be wearing the ensemble at The Ball on Saturday Night.
If you are coming to Lincoln, do come over and say hello, I shall be in the main hall at The Lawns on Saturday and Sunday selling Steampunk Emporium and lots of pretty jewellery.
I shall do a proper set of photographs of me in the outfit when I get back, and hopefully there'll be plenty of pics taken at the weekend,
So what do you think? A success, any suggestions for additions/alterations?

This is the fabulous Eliza Doolittle style hat to accompany the outfit, it is from one of Lynne Mc Masters historical hat patterns (the titanic oval crown) with a few tweaks of my own.
My assistant Lizzie made it up, didnt she do a great job?! It is asymetric with a much bigger brim on the right, that side is so huge it needs a weight on the other smaller side to keep it balanced, I'm going to create a couple of pockets with curtain weights in so it balances properly...
Its extra small in size cos I have a teeny head, it fits me perfectly but I forgot I might be wearing a wig... I foresee lots of hat pins
