So, I don't have the $100+ to drop on a new bodice for RenFest but I do have most of the stuff for making one. Thing is I don't have a pattern D: The type of bodice I want is like this


Like I said I don't have a pattern so I don't know how to go about this. Do you know a patter for something like this or how to draft my own?

If you fancy something with a bit of aggressive boning, you could try this:

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

It looks like a familiar brand which comes in many pieces, held together with shoestring. If it's yours, when you take the shoestrings out, you have the pattern pieces for the one you're going to sew for yourself. I did my first one that way. Cheesy
