Why you two-faced...

I'd like to say I 'whipped this up' today, but after the prewashing of the material, and the confusion of the lining (this weird sticking the sleeves through the gap at the bottom, sewing in a whacky circle thing) I shall just say I made it today:
The first side is to match the doiley dress

and the other is to match the black spotty dress I cut out, but decided to put off making because of wrestling with sleeve lining (it's the same pattern as St Francis, so it will be quick enough one I get around to it)

*edited to add* The pattern for the bolero is Simplicity 3748 "1950s Retro" from which I made the pink and black cuffed bolero last December. The pattern is out of print, but you can find it on eBay.

Love the fancy reversiblenessness. I don't think I have this pattern, but maybe that's just as well. I have little patience for tricky linings.

I'm thinking you could bias bind it, which would make it much easier...

I rather like it with the green actually. Shall we see you wearing this on Christmas day?

Which pattern did you use for this? It is awesomely shaped and much better than the ugly one I made this weekend. I'd like to make one like this...
