So I'm crocheting a little doll, and I want to dress her in period clothes, around the 1800s or so (I think that's about right). Anyway, I wanted to try my hand at sewing things for her, and I wanted to make her a corset. I'm not sure how to go about it, though. I've seen some basic patterns for people-sized corsets, and I thought I might just follow the basics of those on a smaller scale, but since she's so small I don't think I'd be able to put boning in it. And without boning, it might just be a floppy piece of fabric and fall apart.
Help! Any advice would be appreciated.
