A Matching Bolero

What was my eyelet dress missing?  A matching coverup, of course!

With very limited leftovers, I decided that I wanted to make myself a little bolero.

Butterick 6354 was easy to find (especially important these days since I have not completely recovered from my move) and even better, did not require much yardage.

I decided that I would not underline this piece with the cotton voile, which left me a dilemma . . . how to finish those raw edges.

And, once again, Hug Snug came to my rescue!

I did not have a perfect color match, but I think these tones work together nicely, and if anyone notices, they are way too close, anyway.

I just love it when a plan comes together!


  1. really beautiful work - love the colour choice

  2. The bolero, atop the bow in the back, and that undulating have created a perfection insurrection!

  3. You are amazing to be able to move, sew and blog. I am a bit jealous of all your talents and wish I could be as productive in knitting and sewing as you are.

  4. I love everything about this dress and bolero jacket together. It is perfection!
