Mini Bustle + Puffy Sleeves

Mini Bustle + Puffy Sleeves
In fact this started as a test object, but I still finished it: A short bolero jacket with wide shoulders and puffy sleeves with laced hemline, at the front it is closed at the neck with a lovely metal hook.

Matching the bolero I made a very small bustle which can be combined with many clothes. It is closed with eyes and hooks on a waistband that has three layers of quillings in differnet lengths on the back.

Making of …

The very easy pattern for the bustle is completely selfmade and the cost of material for that did not exceed 12 EUR.

The pattern of the puffy sleeves bolero is based on a pattern in a magazin, that i changed extremely, actually just the upper back and the upper start of the puffy sleeves are left over from the basic pattern.
Experiment succeeded ;-)

And the cost of material for the top were just a bit more than 5 EUR.

Completed: 2009

Puffy Sleeves
These two pieces I made as a set or to be worn in combination with other steampunky things. They are not so noticeable, so they can be combined all-round.

Here are some pictures of a photoshoot, wear I wore the pieces seperatly from another :-)
