Making my art a priority in 2014!

I finished this recently for a swap.  I created it as I went along inspired by my swap partners wist list and a drawing I sketched up.  The back adjusts to fit because of the corset like ribbons at the back.  There are also cinching ribbons at teh armpits you can see that help to adjust the fit of the body opening.  The arms have a decorative ribbon cinching, but could be made loose or tight depending on the wearer preferences.

This is how I typically make things, I just "wing it" and frog it till I get what I want.  This is my first garment outside of scarves and hats and afghans and slippers and potholders...lol, etc.
