Description

Tried the easiest way to create a bolero and it literally took me 30 minutes. Just needed a metre of fabric, 140cm wide. Left 60 cm open in the middle of the shirt and added lace on the sleeves. :)

Cotton, lace

    Thanks everyone for your lovely comments! Since some of you have asked a “how to”, I’ll add it later, as soon as I have the time to take demonstrative pictures. (and figure out how to make a how to :)

    You look like Brigitte Bardot in the main photo (meant as a compliment!). The bolero is such a happy colour, and you carry it off so well!
