Description

This pattern is from BurdaStyle April 2012. It is a fitted bolero jacket with little cap sleeves and curved seams. It is fully lined. I used leftover yardage from my Hibiscus Coat project — I always love it when I can stretch the same fabric to make multiple garments — less waste! This one is made in wool, but I think it would be cute in a spring/summer fabric as well.

Material Notes

Wool coating (main)
Silk charmeuse (lining)

      Thank you! The skirt is also a BurdaStyle pattern, except it is a pant pattern that I altered to become a skirt.

    Sleek looking ensemble! The bolero pulls it altogether.
