From the pattern
Mags Kandis has combines eleven of what she calls “faded cotton-candy” colors in slightly off-center blocks to create this short cotton jacket. “It’s little and light, perfect to throw on in the spring and summer when you don’t want anything too heavy or warm,” she explains. Mags named the bolero after Bloomfield, a tiny tourist town in the part of Canada where she lives. “There are a lot of artisans in this area and several galleries in Bloomfield carry their work,” Mags reports.
