This is my 1780’s corset made for my Costume Production 1 class to go under my Chemise a la Rein. I am not dressed period for the pictures in order for you to be able to see the corset better. the top layer is a beetle green silk taffeta. I raised the top of the corset higher than it would have been in true period because the model I was originally making it for was not totally comfortable with the low neckline of the time. This was not made for me and is a bit large, but I think I modeled it well enough. Model: me. Photographer: me.
