Bolero Harness in Leather by rwolf1970 Bolero Harness in Leather by rwolf1970
This is the new Bolero Harness. I worked out the pattern with nothing but a size 8 Australian (US size 4) mannequin and brown paper, and managed to get a size 14 Australian (US size 10) pattern worked up. From here I can adjust better for different sizes than I would've been able to just making it to the mannequin.

Real leather with airbrushed detail including stenciled patterning and edge darkening. This is dye work not paint so it will not rub off. All buckles are mounted on the front panel for ease of wear and the underarm straps are attached to the back panel with natural leather lace.

Price: As shown $95, up on Etsy soon :)

I don't know of an official name for it, I made this design myself and called it a bolero harness. Don't know if there's anything else similar out there :) If you make something similar, link me to it, I'd love to see it :)

Amazing, the only problem is that the limit for the price of importations in my country us 200USD, i dont think that what i want to buy will cost less than that 8and hell it's worth much more) mind that i send you a note for a quote? :)

Certainly, but I should note I'm going overseas for a month so I will not be able to start any new work until late April. If that's ok then send me the note and we'll start the process :)

I'm sorry you probably get this question a lot, but... what is a Bolero Harness? I tried looking it up on google and found nothing concrete, the best I found was that it was part of some bondage fetishes

:iconrwolf1970:
rwolf1970 Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
It's the closest term I could find to describe an above-bust harness that covered about the same as a Bolero top, therefore Bolero Harness. It's my original design so right now I'm the only one making these which is why they might be hard to google :)

No, but then again real Cuir Bolli leather armour was only light protection against a real weapon, and this is neither armour weight leather nor hardened.

About as much as any other bolero :P (Lick) This is made as a fashion and costume accessory, however if desired it could easily be customised for more utility, that is up to the customer.

I think it's more for aesthetic purposes than practical use. Theyre accessories for a whole outfit if I'm not mistaken

it's amazing! really! but wtf with the (shoe) leather laces?
they look very out of context. i'd put a zipper or more of those tick-tack-buttons-things or at least make the laces brown.
it's bulgy unlike the rest that is sleek and fine. i'd replace them. besides that it's super awesome, i haven't seen such great work that uses details in such a smart way.

I did replace the laces on the back, as seen in the 'Vive la Difference!' Bolero here rwolf1970.deviantart.com/art/T…

Those are natural vegtan hand cut laces and would darken naturally with age but were a little too bulky overall so I switched to flat leather lace.

that looks much better,
they should be as flat as possible and in brown.

It's cream leather straps I think.
I disagree with the zips parts because this way they are somewhat adjustable in size.
