Boleros are the icing on the cake of a vintage-inspired wardrobe! These little cropped jackets cover your shoulders while still letting the world see the fabulous ensemble you’re wearing underneath. The Dorothy Bolero is all about giving you options, from daywear to evening glam. The band collar was inspired by vintage Hawaiian sets and it’s perfect for tiki and beach looks, while the wing collar is a classic ‘50s shape that pairs with everything from sweet day dresses to rockabilly jumpsuits (add the matching cuffs for extra flair!). Making the bolero collarless gives off a simple, understated vibe when you want the bodice of your dress to do all the talking (wink, wink). And, as always, I give you multiple finishing options: make the bolero unlined with facings or fully lined for a clean inside finish. There’s even a design chapter with more ideas like using sheers, making your bolero reversible, and creating a pretty closure with frogs or button loops!
