Notes Neat little jacket or bolero. I thought it would go well with the maxi skirt. Sort of a hippie revival suit. I used the fringed selvedge as a piping trim. The fabric is so dark that it's a bit hard to see in the photos. I also found inserting the lining quite a difficult mental exercise. I worked it out and I took photos of how I turned it inside out. Essentially I put my hand through the opening at the neck back and pulled each front through separately.

    Hi Tannie,

    I made it to match the maxi skirt in the same fabric. It would look nice in a faux suede. It is a challenging pattern especially with Lekala's terse instructions. I tried to show with photos how I turned it inside out. I still had to hand stitch the second armhole opening as I could not work out how to do it using a machine.
