Lavender Bolero by ImperialFiddlesticks Lavender Bolero by ImperialFiddlesticks

This is a bolero I made to match my little lavender tophat :) Or was it the other way around? Either way, here it is!

I made the pattern myself and made sure it would fit me well. In other words it probably will never fit anyone else ;) It was really a bit of an experiment. I wanted to make a new bolero (I had this impossible urge to sew something) and I also wanted to see how long it would take. I have been thinking of starting to sew simpler items of clothing to sell with my hats. It's always fun to have something to match your hat with, no? :3 So yeah, this was the first try and it went pretty good. I'll have to alter the pattern if I am to make any boleros for other people though.

Like the hat, this is made of lavender taffeta and it's fully lined with a pale grey fabric. It also has the same grey trim as I used on the hat and a similar flower.

I am really, REALLY happy with the result! X3

Here are some closeups of the hat:

Wow..! This is simply beautiful. I really love the accents on it. I don't suppose you take any commissions for these? D:

Awh thank you X3 *dances*

I don't take commissions right now, no, but I might start to in the future. I want to try to make a couple more before I decide I'm good enough to make boleros for other people X3

^^ I'll probably try to make a couple more boleros during the summer to test the pattern and stuff and then I might start taking commissions in the fall if all goes well.

This is adorable! It looks downright perfect, and nothing but perfect. I wish the stuff they sell in stores was that well-fitting, or at least that well-designed. Great work! :star:
