Black Riding Habit in black. 100% Wool. The jacket is made from an original 1855 pattern (jacket body only). The jacket body is lined in cotton while the sleeves are lined in silk. The sleeves are made from an early 1860s pattern. The skirt is a straight yardage skirt which means it has no train, it is one length all the way around. The skirt is faced with brown cotton. The skirt is pleated in the front, gauged in the back and attached to the waistband by hand. This riding habit should be worn with a white body or a habit shirt/chemisette and undersleeves.
