SteamPunk Dress


Large collar, gathered hem, open front. This pinafore-styled dress bears chic elements of SteamPunk. With our easy-to-follow sewing pattern, you’ll be creating your own SteamPunk Dress in no time.


Gothic fashion has a wide variety of unique styles, one of them being SteamPunk. Our SteamPunk Dress draws inspiration of that side of dark style, combining chic elements to draped hemline. Designed for petite beauties, this dress is easy to sew, and a pleasure to wear.

This pinafore-style dress features an open neckline (which means you should wear a blouse under it!), a large collar, and a gathered hem. It’s best made with slightly elastic twill, but also works well with non-elastic fabrics. The hem of this style is overly long, and is gathered to shape. Optionally, you can sew the hem without draping it, or even shorten it to knee-length.

The dress is available in sizes 32-38. The zip-file (size 3,9Mt) includes a pdf-patternsheet with all four sizes, and a fully illustrated tutorial for sewing the dress. The tutorial is written in Finnish and English, all in the same file.
