I made these cute boleros my friend’s bride’s maids. The dresses were bought and the bride found matching fabric.
I used two different patterns as the girls were very different in sizes.
The patterns were adjusted as one is for a dress and the other is for a basic shirt.
I also made them double sided, as the fabric was shiny on one side and matt on the other, in case there was too much shine the girls could turn them inside out and at the same time it made it easier to sew.
