Classic 12-piece bodice, by Claudia Folts

Bodice Patterns

We offer a wide range of bodice-pattern styles and types, from simple to complex. Each pattern provides it's own exquisitely unique look and feel.

These patterns have been developed over many years of tutu and dance-dress design and construction, and are the very patterns Ms. Folts uses everyday in her own custom designs.

Although suitable for any garment requiring a multi-piece boned bodice, please be aware that we are not period-piece or wedding-gown designers, and cannot provide fitting or construction advice for these costumes.

Also, keep in mind that ballet bodices only allow for about 1/2-inch of ease, whereas most 'commercial' garments allow for 2 to 3 inches of ease.

Please Note: Our costuming books and costume patterns assume an intermediate or advanced level of sewing skills. Our instructions do not cover or teach basic sewing techniques or skills.


All Book and Pattern sales are final - no returns, no exceptions.

Detailed sizing charts are on the Bodice Patterns Sizing Charts page.

So easy, so comfortable, and so beautiful!
Featuring a rounded low back, the diagonal-cut design is very slimming, and looks great on all body types.

The pattern provides an overall longer fit, with the bottom edge of the bodice fitting 2-inches below the natural waistline.

The side-front pieces are cut on the bias for a better fit, and the large seam allowances at the top and bottom help make your fittings easier.

Adult classic 12-piece bodice pattern - front Adult classic 12-piece bodice pattern - back "Adult 12-Piece 'Classic' Bodice Pattern"
This is an exquisite and very classic pattern, though somewhat more difficult to assemble than our 6-, 8- or 10-piece patterns.

Inspired by one of Margot Fonteyn's costumes, the back is medium-low, and beautifully rounded below the shoulder blades to accentuate the upper-back and shoulders.

This bodice is cut longer to 'float' on top of the skirt, 3-1/2 to 4 inches below the natural waist.

The pattern includes 2 neckline options - scoop and sweetheart.

Available in Adult sizes:
      0/0, 1/2, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8, 9/10, 11/12, 13/14
      See the Bodice Patterns Sizing Charts page for size details.

Adult 'Russian' 12-piece bodice pattern - front
"Adult 12-Piece 'Russian' Bodice Pattern"
This 'All-in-One Bodice/Basque' pattern is a very flattering variation on our "Classic 12-Piece Bodice" pattern. A little more 'modern', but equally exquisite, and very 'Russian'!

Like the 'Classic' version, the back is medium-low and cut below the shoulder-blades (but is not quite the same as the 'Classic'). This bodice is sewn over the top layer of the skirt (it does not have the 'floating' front and back 'points' at the bottom like the 'Classic' version).

And like the 'Classic' version, the pattern includes 2 neckline options - scoop and sweetheart.

Available in Adult sizes:
      0/0, 1/2, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8, 9/10, 11/12, 13/14
      See the Bodice Patterns Sizing Charts page for size details.

Adult 16-piece bodice pattern Adult 16-piece bodice pattern - front "16-Piece Bodice Pattern", in Adult and Child sizes
Inspired by NYCB's 'Dewdrop' from "The Nutcracker", we've lengthened the line and re-designed the back to make it our own.

This is a very advanced pattern. It is a long-line 'all-in-one' bodice/basque that can be stitched directly over the top layer of the skirt. This bodice looks fabulous with Classical tutus and Romantic tutus.

Although available in a limited number of sizes, with this many pieces, it's very easy to adjust the pattern for the 'missing' sizes - just select the closest size.

Available in Adult standard sizes:
      1/2 (Small), 5/6 (Medium), 11/12 (Large)
      See the Bodice Patterns Sizing Charts page for size details.

Available in Child standard sizes:
      6/8 (Medium), 10/12 (Large)
      See the Bodice Patterns Sizing Charts page for size details.
