Aww shucks - thanks people!
It is rather boho but if you wore the bolero or the skirt with something else I expect you could get a different look.  It matches perfectly because I made sure I had my fabric scrap - our brains don't hold colours in memory.  It's the same with my search for a quilt cover - I take a colour card for my wall colour so it'll match.

In terms of the bolero all I did was trace a top I already had to get the arms right and measured how long I wanted it to be.  I tried to make the back piece longer and either gather or pleat it at the sides so it would drape across the back but it didn't quite work.  Maybe next time?

And I'm pretty pround of the jewellery too!  I think the black wire makes it different - I've mostly used silver before but the black has made it quite professional looking if I say so myself!

So much to make, so little time!

julietalpha, I really really trully and absolutely love your skirt!  Shocked

(and with that, I'm sure I also like your cardigan, but since it's black, I can't really see the details well, but the fit is fantastic! way to go!)

what sort of a material did you use for your skirt? It drapes very nicely and it's shiny.  Cheesy

It's actually just cotton poplin - one of the cheapest fabrics in the shop!  It's quite light for summer and it does drape nicely and have just the right amount of shine - with a black top it can be evening and with light colours I could wear it to a picnic.
