light brown bolero

The bolero is a breeze to make in just a few hours yesterday and the thick sturdy fabric made it even more enjoyable to sew. I followed almost every bit of the pattern and instructions from the the vintage pattern McCall 5953 except for sewing and inserting the shoulder pads, fashion accessories I haven't yet grow to like. I'll post up photos of me wearing the completed suit when I get to do so!

  1. I love the texture of the fabric, Fiona. Its perfect for this lovely little jacket. I was very scared of shoulder pads too... too close to the 80s for my liking! But you can get some discreet ones that really do help keep the shape of the shoulder without you looking like Joan Collins! x

  2. :)) (laugh!) thanks for the tip! But I think I'm going to steer away from shoulder pads for sometime more.
