If I were in the right city, I would volunteer to model for you in a heartbeat. The jacket you made for me receives compliments every time I wear it.

Clearly I need to do an event on your side of the states!

That reminds me I don't believe I ever actually replied to one of your emails; would you like the same on in a summer weight fabric?

Why thank you for the kind words! I'm working on more of the plus sizes, I need to start scaling up some of the sample things I've done.

Ohhh!!! I actually want to attend the full Parlor, or I'd love to model (and have done lingerie before..). Will there be more modeling needed in the future? :-\

I have no doubt that there will be more modeling needed in the future. And when the need arises you will see the faint silhouette of a sewing machine projected against the dark night sky...
No really I'll just post on steamfashion next time I'm doing a show. Hope to see you there at any rate!

How epic would that be! Hee hee... I'll keep an eye out in the future then.

Good luck with the show! Can't wait to see what you'll be showing! :-)

Sounds like a great event and since I'm in Baltimore, Md, I could go (not sure yet since my work schedule is subject to change). I did look at the website but couldn't find vendor information, just the names and links to a couple of the vendors that will be there this weekend.

Is Dorian's Parlor always a steampunk related event or is it different every month?

Kudos for getting to show off your fashions there!

Ah, I apologize there was a lack of vendor information, I will have to direct you to jaborwhalky and she can answer some vending questions.

Dorian's Parlor keeps the same theme every month, steampunk, Victorian, neo Victorian, Edwardian, bohemian etc. The selection of entertainment and delights however varies month to month to present a wide range of designers and performers to keep it interesting.

I'd love to help you out Claire but seeing your models from the fashion show at Steampunk World Faire, I'm probably just a tad bigger than you need. If memory serves me correctly, when I almost modeled for you at the show, I was 2 inches off at the waist and an inch or so off in the chest and hips.

However, I will be at Dorian's Parlor and am really looking forward to your show!
