Classic Bolero

(7 customer reviews)

$0.00 excl. VAT (EU only)

The free Bolero sewing pattern was my second pattern I ever drafted. Now until I made some updates to the instructions it will remain free for my customers. At the time, ever so long ago, I was selling flower girl dresses on Amazon. Wonderful sumptuous silk flower girl dresses matched with this stunning bolero jacket  was a joy to make. It’s an oldie but a ‘goodie’.

Most of all it is a pattern drafted for creating a fabulous fit for my customers. When you make this Classic Bolero Jacket PDF for a special occasion it will leave your friends and family breathless. Couture meets commercial pattern in a perfect union. It is suited to advanced beginners or intermediate level.

You do need to be able to work very tidily for a stunning result. But on the other hand don’t be intimidated if you don’t have much experience – that is what all my video support is for.

The Classic Bolero Jacket PDF will compliment our flower girl dress pattern perfectly.

    My daughter and I made this bolero for my grand daughter, for her school picture day coming up! It is exactly what mom was envisioning for her girl! Dress was ordered off Temu. And fabric from Etsy.

    So pleased with this bolero! What a lovely sew, challenging but rewarding, and didn't take as long as I expected. My daughter is thrilled with the inside fabric she chose! Video instructions were the perfect pace for me, and I learned a lot (mostly about understitiching!). Thank you!
