I made some progress on the bolero. The second sleeve went on (no issues-yeah!) The lining went in and the arm hole edges were bound. I got almost all of the trim on. I just need to do the cuffs and closure. I didn’t finish the cuffs because I started playing around with options for the closure. As a reminder, the shirt that goes under the bolero was finished with a brooch and ribbon.
Once I put the bolero on and played with the closure ideas, I couldn’t decide if the brooch was too much.
Stay tuned to find out which option I went for.
