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!
