Queen of Hearts Boleros (One-Off)

PRICE: $22 (+ tax and shipping, originally $115). 

The 4 last remaining Queen of Hearts boleros.  These are all for people ranging from Medium to very large sizes (either plus-sized or just broad in the back and/or shoulders).

These are fabulous for dressing up plain sleeveless tops or dresses (or for when someone turns up the AC too high at a party, or if you’re shy about your arms).

The upper sleeve is gathered into a fitted lower sleeve, which comes to a point.  The sleeve style is especially great for making larger arms look more delicate!

Fitting

Because the front is open, you should fit these by back width, measured as shown in the photo with the tape measure. 

Sizes

The measurements given are for the actual bolero, not of the wearer; choose one that’s at least an inch or two bigger than you are for an easy fit, or the same width as your body for a snug fit.  These do not have any built-in stretch.

  • Black and white pinstripe (back width 18 inches)
  • Red with black lace overlay (back width 17 inches) SOLD
  • Black with sparkle pinstripe (back width 17 inches) SOLD
  • Black jacquard (back width 19 inches) SOLD

Tailored Shrugs

PRICE: $23 (+ tax and shipping). 

These tailored shrugs can be worn like miniature blazers, or as modular sleeves for sleeveless tops or dresses.  All were prototypes for a design which I may or may not produce in the future.

They look better in real life than in the photos, mainly because none of them are the right size for my mannequins!

Fitting

Because the front is open, you should fit these by back width, measured as shown in the photo with the tape measure. 

Sizes

The measurements given are for the actual bolero, not of the wearer.  These can be worn either fairly snugly, or with a loose, easy fit — it’s strictly personal preference.  You should choose one that’s 0-0.5 inch larger than you for a more fitted look, and at least 1.5 – 2 (or even more) inches larger than you for a looser fit.

  • Black sparkle pinstripe (back width 15 inches) SOLD
  • Black brocade (back width 16 inches) SOLD
  • Brown wool tweed (back width 18 inches); has a faint gold thread in the tweed pattern that show up as very subtle dots.  If you tend to find wool scratchy, this one is *not* for you. SOLD
  • Champagne-gold satin taffeta (back width 16.5 inches)
  • Dark grey wool blend suiting (back width 16.5 inches); this one has decent stretch, so can be worn snugger
