As I have been telling you I have attempted to create these bodices from the "PATTERN MAGIC" books and managed to complete the weaved bodice with a little bit of help. I thought it worked well and now I know how to create that pattern if I were to do it again. I used a dark green fabric (as you can see) and hope for the best. First of all I started with the weaves being loose and gradually got tighter making it look more professional and intricate. It's bazaar what you can do with some fabric and scissors nowadays, isn't it?
