This Riding skirt, also known as a habit train, was worn while riding sidesaddle. It was drafted based on a tailoring guide from 1883, and is historically correct for 1880-1885. It is shorter on the left hand side, longer on the right hand side, and shaped to fit over the right knee. When in the saddle, the hem should hang level front to back. For walking, the right knee has a loop which attaches to a button at the center back. When looped up the skirt becomes floor length all around, and drapes prettily on the right hip.

Recommended fabrics include wool, linen, twill, heavy broadcloth and similar fabrics. Colors were blue, green, black, brown, gray, beige, and tan. A riding habit in the 1880's was very severe in style, with no trimmings. Combine with TV464 for a very nice tailored looking habit, or any other bodice of the same fabric. **This skirt is not a safety skirt, nor is it considered an official riding outfit. This pattern is intended for costume purposes only.
