I fell in love with this pattern last summer. And I included it in the pattern listing for The Pinstripe Follies. So some time between last summer and fall, I made the alterations to the pattern pieces. I wanted my bolero to be a little longer to go over any of the dresses or skirts from the collection. So I lengthened my pieces and evened out the edges. Then I folded them back into the pattern folder where they sat waiting to be used.

Next up is cutting out the fabric and seeing if this idea will really work.
