What advice would you give someone starting this project? Natalie recommends armor beading in small sections and I agree.

The bolero pattern is in the Studio Style book. I made a medium and took off an inch from the back, tapering to the front because I'm a petite. Also shortened the sleeve and inch,

All I can say is.... WOW! This is simply gorgeous. This is so funny, I started this class to make the Embellished Jacket, but started making so many other AC clothing. I must have over 25 pieces made already. LOL! I just made this T-Shirt / cap sleeve in Medium Indigo Natural Dye with Silt on top, Paisley print/ Grey button craft thread. By the looks of this, it looks like it fits you beautifully. I'm nuts over the Bolero! I can't make enough of them! You inspired me to make this again so I can bead it! Gorgeous!!!!!!
