steampunk baby outfit

Out with the old and in with the new! Introducing the Crochet Steampunk Baby Outfit Pattern.
I just love fun and unique newborn outfits. Steampunk is a fun theme and also adds so much cuteness factor. What’s better than goggles and gears?


Steampunk started as a science-fiction sub-genre in the 1970’s and has blossomed into a following of fun Victorian inspirations to this day. It combines the romantic Victorian ere’s with science elements for a fashion that’s out of this world.

This outfit is great for a newborn photography session, event costume, or Halloween costume. It even fits a build-a-bear! A fun new outfit for a stuffed animal.
It should always be used with supervision due to the button choking hazard.

What is Steampunk?

Steampunk is a style of fiction having to do with a semi-fictional world where old machinery from the Victorian 19th century is still being used!

Want to dress up in Steampunk? Be sure to use goggles, hats, boots, gloves, and corsets.

If you want to watch some fun Steampunk movies? Check out “First Men in the Moon”, “Wild Wild West” or “Steamboy”!
