What are you most proud of? Getting the patchwork to conform to the curves of the body and come out looking right. I'm also very fond of this color scheme.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? To get a fitted bodice to look right, it is advisable to try it out in muslin first.

This is stunning, beautiful color combination and excellent use of patterns. I am absolutely in Love. Is there a pattern or some type of tutorial? how did you come up with this plan for this top and skirt. I so very much want to make one of my own. Please & Thank you

Sorry, there is no pattern. I draped the pattern for the bodice on the dress form, then just let my fabric scraps "speak to me" for the patchwork section. This was a one-of-a-kind creation which I sold on eBay at the time. Although I occasionally sell bags on Etsy, I no longer make and sell clothing items, nor at my age do I expect to do so in the future so have no concerns about copyrights. So if you wish to try to copy, go ahead. If you haven't already done so, take a class in pattern drafting and/or in draping clothing. I haven't checked, but suspect there may be such classes on Craftsy. You'll have a blast when you are able to create just about anything you set your mind to do!

Bless you & Thank for the response.

Simply lovely! You should design a pattern for it and sell it.

I absolutely love the colors. Did you go from any pattern or make one? I would like to try that but I am definitely bigger than the model!

I drafted a pattern for a size 36 bust, which is the size of my mannequin. Then I tried it out in plain muslin first before doing it in the finished fabrics. I used a thin muslin backing for the pieced front, and stitched and flipped the patchwork pieces to the muslin. I have no intention to make this into a pattern for sale, so feel free to copy for individual use.
