This striking puff sleeve bolero is sourced from a rare vintage kimono fabric titled Wild Orchid. It’s 100% silk with a black background and the most beautiful white, yellow, orange painted flowers. It was made circa 1950s.
This bolero is really versatile. It can be worn casually with jeans or you can dress up with a slinky party dress. It goes wonderfully well with the Macy High-waisted Pencil skirt (as shown). All of my kimono fabrics are very special to me and I know they will be to you as well. They have a unique feel, each coming with its own sense of history and memories. Touch them and you connect with a time gone by.
This bolero is a one-off piece. Purchase and you are safe in the knowledge that you have acquired a unique handmade garment that is uniquely yours to treasure. Given that this fabric is more than 50 years old there may be occasional marks and slight imperfections, but this all adds to the character and uniqueness of the fabric.
This Bolero is a UK 12.
