This steampunk digital boot pattern will let you sew boots for your doll. Designed to fit Journey Girls®, these boots coordinate with the Steampunk Inventor clothing pattern.
It is the Inventor who uses their talent and imagination to create the marvels of the steampunk world. Ceaseless tinkering, designing and occasionally blowing things up – the Inventor is a quintessential steampunk archetype.
The steampunk movement is built on Victorian science fiction. As such, steampunk fashion uses the Victorian and Edwardian eras as a basis and builds from there. One steampunk blogger advised “dress Victorian and then add”. It’s the additions – gears and gadgets - that make steampunk so fun. This pattern shows you how to make Steampunk Boots for your doll.
