Description

This English Riding Habit is based on a “Ageless Pattern no. 1256”. The Basque was far to small for me since I don’t wear a corset underneath, so it needed some alteration… The skirt is asymmetrical as you sit on a side saddle and can be hooked on the lady’s back while she’s standing.

    Now that’s how you make an entrance! Lovely work and the fly veil matches too!

      Actually an aunt of mine is a hatter and made the hat in the matching colors of the dress…

    Gorgeous! Was that your wedding dress? If so, incredibly stylish & individual.

      Yes, this was one of my three wedding dresses. I needed another one for the dance, since the pink one was worn with riding boots ;-)
