Barbie Strapless Bodice
The older version and photos of construction are here and the photos may still be useful. I became convinced that the strapless bodice should be better, despite all the letters from people telling me it worked for them. If I don't get any thank-yous for the new version I'll know leaving the old one up was the right choice :-)
Basically I don't think that one version should really be for ALL the different shapes. So I've customized the pattern into four shapes,
Also, I decided I didn't like the weird triangle thing I had for the dart. No idea what was in my brain when I made that. It's better and easier to have a regular cut-out shape and mark the tip of the dart with a pen.
