What advice would you give someone starting this project? To eliminate extra bulk at the waist of a patchwork design like this, the strips need to be smaller at the top than at the bottom. After cutting the strips, I tapered them so the top was approximately 1/4 inch narrower on each strip.

Stunning I want to make one of these. Do you sell the pattern or did you sew it like I do things, create as you go? I've never seen anything like this. . . I love it! And the color palette includes all my favorite colors. mmmmm, nummy

No, I don't sell the pattern, but feel free to copy the general idea. It was a one-of-a-kind creation. You can probably create one similar fairly easily if you are familiar with strip piecing. As I mentioned above, one thing I did different from normal strip-piecing was to taper the strip sets. Also for more comfort in wear instead of straight-fabric drawstrings going through the channels above and below the bustline, I used elastic through the center and fabric only at the drawstromg ends where it would show.
