The Paris Bolero brings with it all the charm and lightness of a spring day in Paris. It is well fitted and a wonderful addition to any beautiful dress you have made for your girl. It ends just in the right point above any bow of a dress.
If you do want a longer jacket you can add a ruffle to the hem. How to do this is shown in the free bonus video, available in the Academy. (Please note this listing does not include the video sewing course)
With a little help from our digital PDF sewing pattern and the e-book brimming with photos, diagrams and charts, you be sure to make quite a few of these awesome stunners.
The sleeves come in two lengths, ¾ or full length. You can work them with a slit or a cute little ruffle. If you are a Frocks & Frolics addict already you probably have a pattern with my cute short sleeves. Pssst … they fit here too. In the gallery you can see what that looks like. I used the sleeves of the classic Bolero.
