Pattern For A Corset/Bodice

Here is a web page with a link to get a ready made pattern to fit a 1:12 scale doll. The pattern is for a 3 piece corset; front back and shaped sides and is sized to a particular mannequin so be sure to cut the pattern from paper towel and adjust the pieces to fit your own doll's torso. It is sometimes difficult to get these 3 pieces shaped right when starting from scratch so our thanks to this doll maker for sharing her pattern:
