New Asymmetric Handwoven Fringed Top

I've made this pattern several times. She's a popular top. She was woven on my 15" table loom all in one length and pieced together. 

Here are her measurements:
* 19.75" from the boat neck to the hem
* 46" around the dropped waist
* 24" across the back from the hem of 1 sleeve to the place 
where the 5.5" fringe starts on the other shoulder

Using most women's size charts, she is a Misses 14/16.

In weaving this top, I used a mixture of threads, all in purple, lavender, cream, and kelly green. The threads have different textures, too. It's a very pretty finished fabric. 

This top is more of an over-blouse or vest. The arm openings are rather deep. They could, tho, be stitched up some if the buyer prefers. I would be happy to add that little alteration if the buyer wishes at no extra charge. As you can see in one of the pictures, she looks really good on top of denim.
