I love it! What pattern did you use for the bolero? I just purchased some gorgeous shantung and I'm super excited to use it!

Thanks! It's Simplicity 3748 retro 1950s separates. I omitted the cuff detail from the pattern for a cleaner look. It's sadly out of print but you can dig around the net for it. I'm also starting to see more and more modern bolero patterns. The pattern I used had way too much ease and I eventually altered it to fit better.
