Step 1 Cut the pattern


Despite all my efforts, the paper sheets might not match perfectely, as there are only 4 pieces, I advise you to cut them first, and to assemble them later, it’s pretty easy.

About the sleeves, I advise you to check the lenght before cutting, because I have small arms! You may want to lenghten them.

About the facings, if you need them (otherwise you can line the bolero, or use biais binding…) :

I am sorry it is a little bit complicate. The top front facing is the only one to cut in the paper. I apologize for the red mark, I got confused when I drew it: you don’t have to cut it on the fold.

For the center and bottom front facing, as well as the bottom back facing, you can either copy it on paper as I drew it (3,5cm wide), or you can cut it directely on the fabric by cutting the edge of the pattern (3,5cm wide).

For the top back facing, I forgot to draw it, but it is exactely the same: you cut the edge of the pattern, minus the dart (for the lenght).

I sincerely apologize for these problems…
