Light Polka Dot Coverup

Because of the open back and shoulders of the Lime Summer Dress, I found it necessary to make a summer coverup that I could wear this dress to church with.

Ever since I got Simplicity 2560 I have liked view E.  So I used it for this bolero. 

Red Tag tricot from Joann's
 After I made it I found that if was too short, so I had to add a band around the bottom to make it work.

 The Back...

 The sides...

And my brother, who helped me with the pictures.  Thanks Than!


  1. So pretty! I've been wanting a coverup like that but my sewing skills aren't quite that good unfortunately.

  2. Absolutely beautiful! You are such a talented seamstress. :)

    Blessings on your day!

  3. Those pictures are beautiful! I love them!

  4. The whole outfit is really cute; great job!

  5. Very pretty! I like the band around the bottom - it gives it a very finished look.
