Pattern: Loes Hinse Bolero Jacket (view A)
Fabric: Olive worsted wool tweed from Fabric Mart.
Comments: I love the Loes Hinse Bolero Jacket - it is my "I need a flattering, professional looking jacket in a hurry" pattern. I have never made a Bolero that I don't like and this one is no exception.
Made in an olive tweed fabric from Fabric Mart, this jacket went together in no time flat. I would estimate it took two hours total and that includes choosing the fabric, ironing the pattern, lay out, cut out, sewing and pressing. Instant gratification at its best! I used one large sage green vintage button as closure on the front.
I'm wearing my new Bolero jacket with the green RPL Hepburn pants I made a short while back and a milk chocolate brown Princess tank made a long while back. For accessories, I have three strands of a dark green malachite-like beaded necklace (doubled up around the neck) and a pair of bronze heels (I can't believe they got cut out of the picture - rats!).
Conclusion: Excellent jacket that will be made over and over and over...
