This is the black satin bolero jacket I made with no pattern for a wedding.



And here is a very bad picture of me on the day, but it shows the bolero with the dress it was intended for.


Thanks for looking!

Wow!
Your bolero looks great, I can only imagine the satin fabric being a pain in the butt to sew. Well done Smiley

Thanks!  Actually the satin wasn't that bad.  It has a non-shiny backing, so it wasn't as slippery.

Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so.

i want to make one like that but use shoulder pads to give it a 40s style. This is PERFECT!  Grin

Thanks ladies!  PsychoSue: Yes, it could easily go 40's style.  Fun, fun.
