Just wanted to share a few pictures of the Originals-By-Kay Silk corset that I recently purchased on ebay. The corset I've used for 1860s Reenacting for the past few years was made by Beth Miller Hall of Gettysburg. Her craftsmanship is beautiful, but it has seen better days. I had hoped to remedy that by purchasing this corset on ebay, but alas, it does not fit my long waisted body as perfectly as I had hoped. I guess I'll be making a corset after all. Hopefully this corset will find a home with my mother.
I'd like to make a pattern from my Beth Miller corset since it fits so perfectly.
Thought you might just like a peek at this very beautiful corset.
Kay Gnagey of Originals-By-Kay also made the corset for the movie 'Owl Creek Bridge' which is one of the short films featured in 'Ambrose Bierce: Civil War Stories'. She did such an excellent job on all of the costumes. I particularly fell in love with this corset and have wanted to make a silk corset since. For now, I suppose it will have to remain on my to-do list.
