I started with the yokes for both fronts and the back. This is where the undersea scene will be developed. Here is what the back looks like with some seaweed before it was all couched down with a variety of threads.
There is a lot of strip piecing involved to add to the rest of the bodices. Here are parts of three different strip sets to coordinate with the yokes. That bottom set is not as curvy as it looks in the picture!
