Okay so this black bolero took me two weeks to make, it really ate up a lot of thread because the flower motif is really fine, I think its 24 dc per petal or more. Anyways, this is for my aunt who lives in Texas..we're in mourning that time because my grandmother just passed away so she requested a black one. Didn't fit her though because I really can't gauge her size being that I live here in the Philippines. Fortunately it fits her daughter, my beautiful cousin Diana and she's really happy to have it..told me it came in time for a special occasion she's attending. Here it is...
This doesn't come with a pattern..I just study how it looks like from the picture..the original is in white and I think it looks great in that color too.
This one is the Boston Proper vest being modeled by my sister-in-law. I've already created 3 of this design in red, nude and off white color.
I decided to make a cord with tassel on both ends
This is the red vesion
This pattern is not quite correct but at least it gives an idea on how to make this
I really like to make one in black but I've been making a lot of projects in black lately that I don't think my eyes can take anymore.. it'd be spectacular though to have a black one. Maybe one day I would.
This is a short sleeve version of the grey one that I did..this salmon color is really pretty.
lighting is not good indoors but outside the true color is stunning..I will upload the pattern as soon as I find it.
Here's another black project I made, a pineapple pattern vest modeled by my sister
Here's the pattern..
I did a blue version
