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!

Oh Lauren this is going along nicely! Can't wait to see it all done and on you! Will you be learning side saddle? I have been away for a bit and may have missed a post on whether you are or not. Having riden side saddle myself, its cool. Unfortunately, riding side saddle in jeans can't begin to replace the wearing of a period habit. That I want to do more than anything. But, I need to get back to riding again. Its been years! You've given me the bee in my bonnet to do it!

What a bold colour! This habit will look beautiful. I love the shape you've chosen, can't wait to see the completed garment and I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of you in that riding habit on a horseback :)
