Maybe an escapee from steampunk asylum?

This outfit combines an investigation of mine in mental health and how people are treated now and also have been treated in the past – some of which makes the mind boggle. I have a range of strait jacket inspired knitwear

Technical Information: 

Hand knitted jersey

Handkniited in pure wool - could be described as 'karitane' gold - with aubergine ribbon threaded down the sleeves and on the back... $330

Bustle shorts

a recyclers dream - 'karitane' gold net curtain fabric from the 70's [glad my mum never went there]. That's the top layer, underneath there's layers of tulle and an aubergine satinised lining [for modesty and to prevent itch from the netting]. $200
