About this design: This bodice is a classic bohemian shape. Its fun and flirty, and has a bit more gathering at the top, than the off
shoulder ruffle bodice. This bodice is a ruffle attached to a gathered bandeau.

Best Paired With: All skirts. Not meant to be paired with traditional sleeves, though straps can be attached.

Variations: The pattern has a gathered top and the bottom is left loose. Left as a separate piece (not attached to the ruffle bandeau),
this bodice is very versatile - add some elastic at the top, and wear it under the arms (as a strapless), over the shoulders, off shoulders,
as a peplum, or as a one strap.
This pattern comes with the ruffled top, and the gathered bandeau patterns.

Sizes: Two sizes provided - regular and long. Precise sizing depends on amount of gathering.
