~ Item for sale is a sewing pattern, not a finished garment ~
At the turn of the 20th century enterprising equestrian women, such as rodeo star Fanny Sperry Steele (1887-1983) wore a divided skirt that enabled them to ride astride, but preserved the "look" of a skirt. This ingenious garment is actually a culotte with a movable front panel that buttons either to the left, for a skirt effect, or to the right for a pants effect. The pattern was developed from Fanny's own skirt by Ruby Erickson of Augusta, Montana.
A deep center back pleat conceals the legs, providing plenty of fullness and assuring a smooth hipline. Double front plackets on either side of the front panel are secured with buttons, which extend down to the hem. We've added side seam pockets, not provided on the antique original. Two lengths are presented: a contemporary mid-calf length and the traditional ankle length.
The Big Sky riding Skirt looks great with Folkwear's Armistice Blouse #210 which is shown in the image above.
