You might remember my Christmas Birthday dress. It's the one I made with the fabric my sister bought be for my Birthday last July, but that I didn't get around to sewing up until December, and I wore it to boxing day and New year celebrations.
Well there was a little extra fabric -just enough for a jacket. I'd already decided to make the jacket at the time I made the dress, but just didn't get around to it. But with wedding season fast approaching (the first being next week) I decided that I should get a move on and actually make it up.
I used the bolero jacket from Burdastyle 4/2012. It was a petite size so I lengthened the pattern to make it just skim my waist.
The construction was easy, although the instructions were a bit vague - they often are in the magazine! I'm not 100% happy with the final outcome, especially the sleeves - but I'm not beating myself up about it and I will wear it. You really do need a jacket for a spring wedding!
