The bolero is complete. Since it’s a costume, I decided to not line it. The body is black microsuede that Hancock’s had on clearance (50% off). The pattern directs you to use 2 different fabric for the flounce, but we (K) wanted lace there instead. Since we were using a lace that had a scallop edge, I wasn’t able to use the pattern.
BTW, the sizing of this pattern is on the small size. Even though we used the correct size for K’s measurements, it’s a bit tight for K and will probably go to her older sis instead.
