This is the Heidi and Finn Ruffle bolero
I used a cotton velveteen remnant for the main fabric (from Global Fabrics in Christchurch before the shop disappeared as a result of the 2011 earthquakes) and a sateen gingham for the lining.
I thought I would use a gathering foot I purchased for my Bernina machine specifically to gather the metres of ruffle on this top and save myself time, but having parted with my $$ I discovered the special foot only works for single fabric layers! Grrrr....
Instead of an elastic button loop I made a small fabric loop out of the velveteen
and used a covered button on the opposite side.
The sleeves were nicely finished with the lining enclosed by the sleeve hem
Overall, a very quick project (even by my standards!) and a great way to use up some left-overs
