With the very first Bridesmaid or Best Man dress listed that jacket would look amazing! I also am loving those ties! I think it all looks great!

@Corilee13: if you’re going steampunk, think “victorian-style” for the gowns.  As long as it’s rouched and/or has pick-up’s you SHOULD be set.  (Or, the western-style gowns with the front cut short….)

Hope that helps!!!

My opinion: go with the black one (either short OR long) with the pick-ups.  With that top… would look AWESOME!!!  (Just add goggles, and it’d be perfect 😉 )

I’m usually not a fan of long dresses but I think for what you are going for its almost a must that they be long!

I think the first one (short/black with pick ups) is perfect and that bolero is to die for! I can’t wait to see your photos.

If you want a gear print around the hem, I think it would be easier to do it with a tea length dress. If you have a plain fabric and a hem like dress#2, you could have a seamstress add a strip of the print at the bottom of the skirt. It could easily be removed so the girls can wear their dresses again.

I really don’t think ribbon at the hem would work with dress #1 or #3 of the tea length dresses. You could consider adding a sash.

Alternatively you could get some printed fabric or ribbon and incorporate it into the swirls on the jacket.

Have you thought of contacting the manufacturer of the ties to see if you could get some extra fabric?

Here is a source for some steampunk fabrics:
