Bolero Patterns/ How tos

Hey ladies, and gentlemen,

I was asked by a friend of mine if I'd ever seen a bolero pattern because she was having some trouble finding some, so I did a bit of research for her...I was thinking I might as well share my finds with all of you too, in case anyone else was having trouble. The first four links are to direct patterns , the three after are pattern names and numbers then the last link is how to draw in the sides and change the fit. Anyways, hope this helps someone.

Altered Brand

So, my roommate got AP Chandelier, and as soon as it arrived, we realized that AP didn't want people who were bigger than 12 year olds wearing it (just kidding, but it is really small, pretty short and the straps are short). So, we decided that in order for her to wear it, we'd have to alter it. We discussed it last night, and I went ahead and rebuilt the dress this afternoon.

Novala's Writings

Hye girls, I was wondering if there are any online archives of what Novala wrote in the G&L Bibles. I would like to find the original Japanese articles. I know there is a site with the English translations but I need the original Japanese version. Thank you~
