1810 Riding Habit by Himmapaan 1810 Riding Habit by Himmapaan
Riding habit, c. 1810. Pencil, sketchbook page; approximately 21 x 29.7cm.

One for the history/ historical costume buffs, just to provide another punctuation from the many recent saurian things.

This drawing was actually made a few years ago (2006/7?). Referenced from photographs of an actual riding habit in the collection of the Kyoto Costume Institute. A chance occurrence reminded me of it, and as it's still tolerable enough, I thought I may as well post it, too. *Tries to refrain from shrugging*

Sigh, the compression is particularly bad on this one. :hmm:

Definitely like the old-world feel to her face.

I love riding habits, their heavy folds are so elegant. There's a red one in the BBC's Wives and Daughters that I covet despite not being at all a horsy person. =P But this one is lovely as well, and the details of the fabric are beautiful. =) I like the hat, too; I was never fond of the straight brim of the one on the model.

Ah, yes, the one worn by Lady Harriet. 'That was a good day's work, I think.' Yes, that is gorgeous.

Thank you from a historical costume buff! It's lovely. I'm not sure what I'd like most - to be able to make the drawing, or the actual dress O.o

You are after my heart, aren't you? ;) Riding habits are just such pieces of beauty - a sign of the future of women's fashion.

This is lovely! The folds and the airiness of clothing that is (I would think) so heavy is so striking.
