Monet dress in this post from 'Stylish Dress Book' pattern a, and you can see the other items I've made from her patterns here, here, and here. About the same time I was reading this book, sweet SaSa posted about her lovely Drape Top she made from the same book and I knew I had to begin a project immediately. I chose pattern x Frilled Black Bolero. My Bolero is not black, so I am calling this pattern Frilled Bolero. :)
online Facebook group, Sewalongs & Sewing Contests I'm a part of, inspired me to pull out my one and only UFO (unfinished object) and see if it could be salvaged by a UFO group deadline. I missed the UFO finish date by a mile, but plugged away and now am very happy with this finished Frilled Bolero.
Monet dress has the same color blue in its fabric, as this was not the original planned dress to be worn with this bolero.
Ottobre top with lots of serged rolled hem finishes, it gave me the idea to finish the edges of the frill with a serged rolled hem and it was the best choice because it gave a nice pretty finish to the frills, and kept everything all drapey and flowy. I was awfully proud of the pretty straight stitching above the frills too.
