I adore this pattern. Ive wanted a set of boleros for a while, and finding this pattern is a 42 bust was meant to be.

There are so many options, but I made this version because I wanted to wear it with athe first floor length gown I ever made. I didnt get it done in time for the evening out, but now that I have it I intend to wear them together.

I know the jacket is suppose to be a bit above the waistline, but I intend on making the next one an inch longer in the back.

I didnt read the directions, but I was enamored by the pocket on the dart. It was not a hard opperation to figure out.

I made the lining linen to stuffen out the navy wool of the outside.

Progress can be seen on the blog.
