Description

this bolero looks like a variation on “my take on ‘stella’,” but to be honestly its not! this is inspired, or appararently a knock off, of a bolero featured in Elle India Magazine in March 2006.

i usually wear this at work (yes a bolero at work!) summer here in Oman means temperatures can reach up to 40C; and even though i work in well air-condioned office, wearing cardigans/coat/blazer is quite uncomfortable. so instead i opt for bolero of light weight material

the designer used brocade material, while i used linen

    I’d so love to make this, esp since I have a wedding coming up. It will go well with a Simplicity dress pattern I’m planning on bringing to life!

      i have worn this bolero over a LBD, accented with a pin/brooch… the cliché “less is more” really works ;)

      glad to inspire you

    It would be good to my work too… ;) I really like the color and the material too, it makes it wearable. Beautiful!
