Reggio Emilia, I...
ok, here you’ve got the pattern! i scanned the small image on the book " Patterns of fashion 2" by Janet Arnold, i resized to make it wearable for a scandinavian 38-40 ( in italy is 42). it was a really hard work with photoshop and posterazor, but in the end i got a real bolero from that little image! i admit, i made some changes in the one you see in the photos: smaller sleeves, larger shoulder holes and neckline, but i decided to upload the original 1863 pattern so you can use it for costumes too! anyway, it’s very very easy to make, you just have to sew together the pieces and then you can add bows, lining, buttons, braid..as you like!
