Late 1770s style riding habit I recently finished. The main fashion fabric is pearl green worsted wool, lined with copper silk taffeta, trimmed with copper silk velvet. The waistcoat is the same silk taffeta. The buttons are a death head done with gilt silver thread (they will eventually tarnish even!). The habit shirt is light linen with detachable lace trim, cravat is linen as well. Mitts are wool/silk blend. All of the garments are completely hand-sewn in 18th century style. Patterning was done at a Burnley & Trowbridge workshop. The hat is wool felt with natural ostrich plumes and a silk bow where it cocks up on one side. There will be a very detailed inside and out on my blog soon I hope. If you would like any other shots on here, please ask!
