I was inspired by my hubby's ripped and tossed aside ACUs, and being a passionately soldier supporting Army wife, that's the direction I went! We're using Cat the poppet to model, I didn't have time with two kids and the husband underfoot to make a whole new poppet. The design is not 100% original, I based the corset off of craftewoman's pattern, just enlarged it slightly, made the front waist pointy and changed the way the back closes. All the ribbons are rescued from the ACU cinch ties, which is how the soldiers gather the pants into their boots. The scarf is a lace trim.
