A common feature of 1850's and very early 1860's sidesaddle riding habits is the jacket style bodice with a long basque and peplum. As shown in this 1855 French fashion plate from Le Follet magazine, the bodice of a habit could either be jacket style and worn over a blouse or a regular fitted high necked bodice with a long basque and peplum.


1850s, not 1860s, but still too pretty not to post. :)
