Well, I'll be honest. I don't even know why or how this bodice worked out. I've had the idea in my head for a long time, I've just not ever had it come to fruition, but here it is. A serious buccaneer bodice. And, a little secret to the 1.5 people that are actually going to read this-I was too dang lazy to actually sew all of those buttons. They're safety pinned on.
