I received a very special request from a very special client. She asked me for an original Eighteen century redingote (or Riding coat- english word) She wanted all the original cuts and asymmetrical armholes…
As you can see the pattenr has no darts or cuts at the front of the bodice. The back was made as a puzzel shaping the corduroy lines as zigzag.
Everything was made in its original 18th century concept. The capellines trimmed in satin, the pleated skirt, buttoned high collar and even the hippads. Satin covered buttons at the front and at the cuffs. Lovely item definitve, the fit is just amazing!
4 mts corduroy, thick cotton denim as a lining!
light weight cotton as a lining of the skirt and sleeves
