More Riding Habit Progress…

Hello friends and readers, I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I can’t believe the work week is starting yet again, and I could really use your prayers in that department.

Anywhoo, I finished the jacket to Mrs. Cartwright’s habit this evening. I’m very happy with the result. As usual, I will warn you that the dress form does not do the shape any justice. Enjoy and God Bless!

I’ve been really loving the project. It has been so much fun to put together and learn new techniques. Hopefully I will be able to start on the skirt tomorrow evening.

Have a great week everyone!

Oh, it's so stylish! I so want a riding habit now! (And my to do list just keeps on growing :P)
Is it a two piece jacket + vest or is the vest part a stomacher?
