Wellington, New ...
Made from McCall 804 , a vintage pattern from 1940.
This is the second time I’ve made up this pattern – it goes together nicely, and has some of the pretty details that the 1940’s were great for, such as the four darts in the sleeve head to create that well-defined, well-fitting shoulder.
I fully lined this one using some red lining, for a pop of colour when taking the bolero off and on. (I do like me some bright colours!)
