Almost Sienna Miller Red Bolero

Enschede, Nether...






I made this bolero jacket just guessing how am I gonna make the embroided part?. For this creation I ussed the basic pattern for coats publised on Burda Easy Fashion fall 2006.
I just changed the sleeves and do not put collar on.
The emrboided was completely my idea. I just started drawing on the fabric and tried to keep the same design on every side.
For doing it, I used normal thread sewing machine and I made it by hand. I akso tried to maintain the same colors of the original.
Golden bottons and the same embroided design for sleeves and neckline.
Difficult… I don’t think so, but it takes a lot of time and patient.
Embroided isn’t exactly one of my dearest task but I think I have kept something from 13 year in a catholic school. (nons are very demanding when it comes to embroid). Well, thanks to all of them I can present to you the results.
I wear it the same way that Sienna Miller did.

Material Notes






Burda Easy Fashion and to me for the incredible patient and time it took

    All that catholic education came in handy – the embroidery is amazing! The jacket looks lovely.

    The embroidery is awesome! Did you do it with the machine, a regular or an embroidery machine? Cute design
