1875-1879 Canadian Sidesaddle Riding Habit (dress) at the Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto - From the curators' comments: "The snug jacket is lined with cotton for comfort and the perfectly fitted waistcoat is padded and boned for warmth and fit. The complicated, asymmetrical sidesaddle skirt wraps and drapes elegantly around the lower body when standing. In the saddle the curved seams undulate over the knees, around the buttocks, and completely hide the legs and ankles."
