This is a riding habit based on a historic pattern I received from a friend. Sizes were quite different in 1888, so I had to alter the pattern quite a lot. It consists of a jacket and a so called security skirt. While sitting on horseback, it looks like a regular skirt, but the trick is that it is open in the back so that you don’t sit on any fabric but the one of your trouser you wear underneath. As soon as you dismount, you wrap the skirt around you so it looks like a very long pencil skirt.
