The #231 Big Sky Riding Skirt sewing pattern by Folkwear was a style worn at the turn of the 20th century by equestrian women in rodeos and riding. The divided skirt enabled them to ride astride while preserving 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. A deep centre 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. There are side seam pockets on this pattern, not provided in the antique original design. Two lengths are presented: a contemporary mid-calf length and the traditional ankle length.
