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!
Stripe cotton fabric from Ikea, lined with quilting cotton fabric (red spots).
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
