Have you ever wanted to learn how to sew a jacket, shrug or cropped sweater? I’m always looking for little girls bolero jackets to cover up my little ones’ shoulders so this time I just decided to make some! These tutorial can even be used to learn how to sew a shrug in women’s sizes to add a little coverage to a prom, cocktail or evening dress. Read on and watch my latest video to learn how to sew a bolero jacket for the little girl in your life, or even for yourself!
Then it’s a cropped bolero jacket or shrug sweater is the perfect thing to take a casual summer dress up a notch! In this new video tutorial, you’ll learn how to sew a jacket with an existing pattern and in just an hour or two. And if you’ve ever wondered how to sew a shrug for yourself, especially a nicer one to cover a cocktail or evening dress, you can make this tutorial work for that too! Just adjust the size of the pattern you use and anyone can benefit from this cute little cropped bolero jacket tutorial.
The fabric I used actually came from an XXL women’s sweater that I snagged from Old Navy (same place that I got the girls cute star dresses!) and cut up to sew these cute little bolero jackets! So they’re technically cropped sweaters but will work to cover their little shoulders in any fun summer dress, especially if it’s cute patriotic colors like these!
