I and in the process of listing lots of antique and vintage clothing from a local estate. This listing is for a women's antique riding habit dating circa 1880/ It is of a very dark blue serge wool with black corded decoration.
The riding habit is a very small size though I believe, by the length it is for an adult woman, or possibly a teen. It is shown on a size 2 - 4 mannequin. The skirt just closes, and the bodice comes nowhere near closing.
It is made with 12 stays. Some have slipped part way out of their pockets. There is a little wear to the interior lining. The skirt has some wear and tear at the waistband.It appears in otherwise very good condition. The interior of the skirt is lined in brown cotton sateen. The length in the front is 41 1/2. It is meant to be worn with a bustle and is shown with one on the mannequin.
The bustle is not included with the riding habit. The item "1880'S WOMENS WOOL RIDING HABIT NAVY BLUE SERGE WITH BLACK CORDED DECOR" is in sale since Monday, May 20, 2019.
