Fussing with calico to form the pleats, they are backwards in this image. Opps!

It may be a long term project, I'm not sure yet how detailed I want to go with the decorations and possible beading, so many options!

Yay for Penny Dreadful clothes! The costuming on that show is so delicious. :D I think I may need to follow your example and make something PD inspired, I'm on a total kick right now. XD

Yes!, I am loving the use of texture and pattern in relation to character and how well everything reads on screen. My husband is watching it with me and about 2 eps in he leans over "You should make one of the costumes from this, they are very you."

Thankfully he can deal with all the black fabric everywhere.
