Meh the photos aren’t there anymore.  Here is the best pic I have of the bolero.
Sorry I can’t find any great pics of it from the front.

Me! I just finished making mine, my aunt gave me her old wedding dress to rework. It’s a little different. I’ll take a pic and post it this evening…

I am! I bought mine from Etsy and it is really gorgeous. I don’t have my dress yet, or I’d show you a photo on a real person! What kind of veil are you planning to wear, if any?

Here it is from the website. I bought a medium and it fits perfectly. I wear about a size 6-8 on top.

ETA: Ooh, forgot to add that it was only $45. Seriously.

@MM423: I tried a 3/4 length bolero at one of the bridal stores, but it was way too big and just looked dumb on me. I bought this one online just hoping it would work, and thought that $45 wasn’t too much to regret spending if it didn’t work out 🙂

Also I was really happy that they had pictures of the back. Too many of the lace boleros I found online were more sheer than lace – you know, more surface area was made of tulle than actual lace.

I bought from the same store as Lida

and mine was around $45 I think.  Here are 2 pics:

 

 

It was this one, on Etsy:

 

 

But I also LOVED this one, but it was out of my price range (but still around $100 I think?) on Etsy:

 

 

I know everyone’s experience is different but I will say that the one I bought ended up being too large.  I normally wear an XL as I’m busty but I should have ordered a large, I did it at the last minute and had no time for an exchange though.  As a result the puffy sleeves didn’t “puff” on me and kind of slouched off my shoulders, so I ended up having to stiffen the lace to shape the sleeves so they’d fit right.  You can see in this pic how it was before I “stiffened” it (compare to first ones).

@MM423: I like the top one. The lace seems more sunstantial.

I promise I’ll post a pic of mine after work today, too…

@MM423:  I like the top one too, I like the scalloped edge and how it is more prominent. 🙂  I would have gone with the sleeveless or cap sleeved one myself, but I was trying to hide arm flab. 😉
