      Moi, ja kiitos! Osittain kaava on juuri siitä, mutta olen hieman muokannut etu- ja takaosaa sekä hihat on tehty ihan omalla kaavalla. Mutta idea lähti kyllä juuri siitä bolerosta, jos nyt vaan puhutaan samasta :)

    Gorgeous bolero! I really like the front part, with the buttons. Waiting for a pattern so I can make one my self if I have the permission? :) Fan-freaking-tastic work! :)

      Oh dear, as a beginner I have to put my hands up and tell you that I propably don’t know how to make larger sizes :( If the pattern would help you a little and you could change it to fit you? I’m sorry for my lack of talent :)

    Try Ikea for red and white striped fabric, Medea! I saw some on their website, they may have one near where you live!

    I feel completely flattered! Thank you guys for the comments, I promise to add the patterns later! (as soon as I get the chance to draw them and change them a bit, to make them perfect)

      Found it from a finnish fabric shop, Eurokangas. I guess it doesn’t help you? :)

    Nothing Fancy, you say. I think it transformed a white tshirt and jeans into a super cool outfit. I love it. I am too reminded of candy cane but without the calories.

      I only used adhesive tape (? a one you glue on to using an iron) on the seams at the front but nothing more. :)

    gorgeous shape and fabric…the print is very striking…but paired with this style, it has just the right amount of gorgeous intensity to make it work…tis would be lovely over a little cream lace dress or something!!

    well done!:-)

      I mixed and matched, made the sleeves pattern myself and took the front and the back from a readymade pattern :)

    Oh! Gorgeous! I love it! Is it a pattern you’ve made yourself? Jersey cotton or without stretch? The long sleeves are really cool.

      Oh dear, as a beginner I don’t know what is jersey cotton… but I can tell you that much that it had a little bit of stretch. (enough for the edges to curl and make me insane :)
