This is a ruffled bolero made using Sewella’s instructions. It took me forever to make because the fabric was so thin that it would get pushed down into the machine and torn apart. For awhile I though I might have been better off with a too-short tshirt. The other problem was that I couldn’t do a zigzag baby hem on the ruffles; my machine doesn’t seem to feed right when I sew that close to the edge. It turned out alright in the end, though.
My only change was that I added an eye hook at the collar to keep it from gaping open.
