Sneak Peaks of the Red Riding Habit

I’ve been slowly plugging away at my riding habit. I have been soooo busy I have only been working on it one or two days a week. The pictures aren’t the best, but you get the idea.

I am using Janet Arnold’s Riding Habit pattern as a guide for the skirt. I really liked the shape, however, I added a bit more fullness to the back of the skirt and I may add more fullness to the front, before I’m finished.


The cartridge pleats on the skirt.


The back of the skirt with the tiny bodice attached.


I still need to hem the skirt, but I’m waiting until I finish the jacket. I want to see how it all looks together before I hem anything.

The Riding Habit on the far right is the overall shape I am going for. I hope to have some more to show you all soon :D

Now, I’m off to the barn to work with the equine babies!

God Bless!

Love Lauren

What We Have Been Up To…


As you can see, Aaron and Beezus are two peas in a pod. She looooves him and he is in love with her.

My boy, Bob, konked out with his buddy Ramona.

Sorry the pictures aren’t the best, they were taken with cell phones. At least you get the idea :)

I’m also plugging away at my riding habit. I’m hoping to have some pics for you all in a the next week. Right now, it just looks like a bunch of red fabric and seams :P

Have a lovely week!
