I think this may be my new favorite thing for Sprout and I'm pretty sure I need to make one Mommy size. Let me show you how easy it is to make a bolero jacket with ruffles!
ONLY CUT YOUR SLEEVE LENGTH, OVERALL SWEATER LENGTH, AND SIDE SEAMS. DO NOT CUT ALONG THE SHOULDERS - I just realized the dotted lines run up the outer edge and shoulders - duh! Don't cut there or along the v-neck! Leave the v-neck intact for now.
So, there it is. My bolero refashion with ruffles. It seriously was super easy! Go forth and thrift, refashion and sew!
