In Holland every cat and dog rides bicycle, so it was only natural to use and old bicycle tires to create this look.


Bicycle tire apron and leather bolero

For the bolero leather jacket, I used  vintage leather jacket(circa 80’s) with huge sleeves.Big and dowdy,with lots of rhinestones applications(think Elvis from the 80’s?).So I cut the sleeves and sew them together.Then added the belt from the same jacket.Bam!Leather bolero made from sleeves alone.

Demonstrating the full skirt feature of this outfit.Worn with spandex leggings.While trying to look DEXTER-esque with my rubber apron, putting a leather glove..Side note-I am a huge Dexter fan.

For the apron,I cut the strips,then wove them and put the lining.Then made the suspenders.
