So the riding habit is on hiatus b/c I want to use it for a final project for the end of the semester (which is, as the name suggests, at the end of the semester, which is in december.)  So I will be working on it very slowly, and won’t bother you all with miniscule updates.  in the meantime:

- chemise with janky ass glazed (????) linen

- possibly a lil’ modernish dress with the wool lycra blend that makes the angels cry tears of righteous anger

- MORE CAPS MORE CAPS MORE CAPS

- lil’ red wool jacket, just ‘cause.

so i went into CW today to ask for advice on the riding habit (gosh i love being nearby) and they suggested i use a stronger lining fabric than i was planning. problem is, most of my linen is p much handkerchief weight.

haha, i didn’t need that white underpetticoat anyways.

(also, i finished my riding jacket petti to spice up my weekend wardrobe)
