Description

This is a vintage three-piece outfit that consists of blouse, bolero and skirt. The blouse has a beautiful bow detail at the neckline. The skirt has an unusual waistband (which is actually supposed to be a belt but I opted to make it the waistband). One of my favorites!

Material Notes

I used a coral tropical wool for the bolero and skirt. The skirt and bolero are lined with a lighter coral bemberg rayon lining. The blouse is a beautiful floral cotton lawn.

    Thanks very much to you both. Now if it would just cool off a little bit more here in FL I could wear the matchy-matchy bolero!
