Description

i made this in a day for a marie curie charity night. my origonal dress was’nt finished so i whipped this up super quick.the fabrics really nice, its loud bright and bold just like me lol. i’ve made this dress before and again i did version b with a few changes, namely the skirt section. i changed the straps this time and put them fron the back round to the front. the boleros one of my fav burda patterns. i altered it as well as its a tie front bolero. i rounded of the ends and made it reversable . t did the job and everyone seemed to like it x

    Very beautiful outfit: I like everything in it – the pattern that fits well, the mix of colours that suits you, this soft orange or apricot emphasises your beauty, and such two-pieces ensembles always make lady-look, and you are so good at such combinating, the reverse-ability of the bolero is above any praise. And it’s so pleasant to see you and your family together and so happy!

      thank you staroks, i love family get to.gethers and this was such a lovely night out and all for a good cause. one of my closed friends passed away recently with cancer, she was only 43 and a fabulous girl. i hope we all did her proud at the event,
      i love outfits like this as they’re figure flattering and the pattern hides all my lumps and bumps lol x

    Lovely model! You look wonderful ;) It was a good idea to use the same fabric in the bolero and that you can use it both sides. Nice photos ;)
