Notes The material is scuba and stretches in all directions. Deliberately making an edited bolero and not a classic black one ( but make well one more in black).
With the colors in this fabric, I can go many tops to wear.
I would have liked to let the patterns in the fabric continue, but that was not possible.
The bolero is ready and I made the sleeves slightly tighter from my upperarms to my wrist but that is a personal feeling. The back turned out to be way too wide and went straight down and I had to make it a total of 10 cm narrower and still gave up my body measurements and reached out.
I extended the bolero by 3 cm, but it also depends on your wishes and I am happy with it.
The bolero does not fit properly on the mannequin, so it looks like the sleeves are uneven, but both are really the same length!

    Hello Autumn36,
    Thank you and see my answer in your mailbox.

    I have 2 yards of 40" wide Thai Silk (from Thailand).
    Although I have input the width of my fabric, I cannot see how much I would require, nor the fabric layout. Do I need to buy the pattern before I can find this information.

    I just love your finished jacket and the fabric. In fact by seeing the finished article, it has encouraged me to make it, if I have sufficient fabric.

    When you said you extended the bolero by 3 cm, did you mean the length of the bolero?

    In fact, I fell in love with scuba cloth this fall. I found it only in one color. A really nice bolero.
