Description

I saw the “quick Bolero” by Haniini55 and died! I have to have one and knew instantly the fabric to use! It looks a little different on me as I am quite plus sized in the bust area, but the slim line of the sleeves gives it the right look.

I didn’t use a pattern, but kind of fudged it using an existing jacket in my wardrobe with slim sleeves – laid out onto the fabric and cut around it, then drawing the arc of the front by eye.

Its a great little accent piece – and now I have a gorgeous bolero and “Hot Sass Shorts” from $10 of IKEA fabric!

And thank you Haniini55, your jacket is faaabulous!

Material Notes

Stripe cotton fabric from Ikea, lined with quilting cotton fabric (red spots).

    Oh wow, it looks perfect on you! I should’ve added the pattern by now, but I don’t know how. But great that you figured it out and made it work so well!

      Ah, awesome! I also would not know where to start uploading a pattern! Too tricky for me. xx

    Looks great, and I love the lining! It is very flattering for your figure!
