Jenniferose7 answered:
This dress was made with the Craftsy course Sew Retro Perfect Bombshell Dresses. check it out under the online classes abouve. The pattern used comes with the price of the course as is part of the course materials and it's a Burda Style downloadable pattern. Here's the link to the pattern but I would suggest taking the course rather than using the pattern on its own: http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/52011-bustier-dress-with-draped-detail
mz.katnes asked:
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!
Jenniferose7 answered:
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.
