Nice to see you back julie, I missed reading your posts!

That costume is lovely but no offence to the lady wearing it in the photos, but in the antique Victorian riding habits I have had in my collection, the bust area was always padded out with lambswool in the lining to help those ladies a little less "well endowed" in that area. :)

Great to have you back.

I've long had an interest in historic clothing so I love your finds.

Great to "see" you again Julie!
I looove love love habits of that style with the buttons all the way down the front. I think that may be my next project!

Hope you're doing well!
