    What a great looking, versatile bolero…I think I’m going to try some old fashioned soutache braid. Thank you for a fantastic pattern!

    What a classy bolero? But I wish there was a picture of the back—it looks like the sleeves do something interesting in the back. Thanks for the awesome pattern! The chocolate velvet in my stash would be perfect for this!

    It’s very cute! just looking at it makes me want to make one. I’ve been looking for a top to compliment a dress i made last month. This looks like a winner! Marvelous job!
