So a few weeks ago I took my old Bodyline bolero and altered it. I bought the blouse on my first trip to Japan. It was in my first lot of Lolita purchases! I bought a whole outfit that day - skirt, blouse and bolero. I've already altered the blouse, which is now much more wearable! I wanted to alter the bolero because I actually haven't worn it ever. According to my mum, it looks like a bedjacket!
Here's the stock photo from the website. She looks so cute in it!
This is a slightly embarrassing photo of me in my purchases the day I bought them. In our hotel in Japan. Drinking tea and reading GLB! So not cute.
So as you can see, it's really frilly! It has faux detachable sleeves, a bow at the front, bows on the sleeves, and lace down the front. So frilly!
I took the faux sleeves off so now the sleeves are little cap sleeves. I also removed the bow from the sleeves, and the lace from down the front. After:
Now I have these bits left over. What should I make with them? I think I'll make little hairclips from the bows but the rest... any suggestions?
