Good Monday to you all! I hope you have had a most wonderful weekend! After taking most of last week off from sewing (I did start and finish the altering to the maternity NFE tea gown that I wore to an event back in June...photo shoot later) I am back at work adding to my Victorian Sports wardrobe. This week I begin work on an 1875 riding habit inspired by this fabulous one from The MET. I made two riding habits years ago...like 7 or 8 years ago...and for some idiotic reason, I sold them both. But that's ok, because I now have an "excuse" to make another one and this one out of a very deep forest green Pendleton Wool.
The patterns I'm using are:
Skirt; Truly Victorian 1883 Riding Habit Skirt TV264
Bodice: Past Patterns 902 Riding Habit Bodice PP 902
Past Patterns 901 Riding Habit Trousers PP 901

Well, I am off to work! I hope you all have a most wonderful day!
Oh my, what a fun project!!! I just know you'll do a smashing job on it, and look fabulous in it!! :) Can't wait to see the progress, have fun!!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much Esther! I am a little bit freaked out about the bodice pattern, but the skirt is completed and the trousers look pretty simple to construct!Delete
LOVE LOVE LOVE! If you still want to do pictures with my horse, let me know :) I have a neighbor within walking distance that I think will let me use her pasture that looks nicer than mineReplyDelete
Thank you so much Michaela...I was just thinking about you the other day as I started this and was wondering, "Is she still serious about borrowing her horse?" I would so love to do it and I am thinking after the big fashion show we do at the beginning of September (10th) I will take you up on your offer!! What fun!!Delete
