REINWEAR DRESSAGE SET

REINWEAR

MADE BY HORSE LOVERS FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HORSES

  

  We specialize in offering equestrian sewing patterns for 18-inch dolls such as American Girl and Gotz (46cm). Our exclusive patterns incorporate the detail and style associated with traditional riding clothes for TWELVE popular equestrian disciplines. We want you to have a win-win experience -- fun creating the garments and satisfaction sharing your garments with someone you love. 

  The unique step-by-step instructions make sewing a breeze.  We have worked hard to make sure that this is a sewing project that will be easy enough to finish in a few hours but will look like you spent days and days slaving over your sewing machine. We are proud to offer you, the home sewer, sewing patterns that will help you create beautiful garments and accessories that look and feel just like garments that are worn in the real-world by equestrians in their chosen disciplines. 

  Each pattern comes with detailed, start-to-finish, illustrated instructions that will assist you in your creative process. Along with the pattern pieces, we have included fabric suggestions, yardage requirements, and the cutting layout. Be sure and check out two special pages on our web site-- “Attire” and “Helpful Hints”. The “Attire” page gives a detailed description of the what should be worn for each discipline. For example, a rider showing in a Hunter Seat Equitation class would require a variation on the attire that would be appropriate in a Jumper class. This information is vital for you to make fabric and color choices that will add to the “reality” of your project. The “Helping Hints” page has many suggestions, clever ideas and shortcuts just for you. We want to assist you in making riding clothes, not “doll” clothes.

  If you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced sewer, you will enjoy sewing clothes for 18-inch dolls. The most gratifying moment will be when you dress your doll for the first time and see that the cut of each garment is beautifully tailored and you are ready for the show ring! We know that when you invest your time and money in sewing a garment for that special girl in your life, you want to end up with a garment that you will be proud to say,     “I made it myself with a REINWEAR pattern!”

  Feel free to browse through the web site and view our current products. We look forward to hearing from you. Please send photos of your projects. We’ll share them with other REINWEAR enthusiasts.

 Look for our page on Facebook. Go to SEARCH: Reinwear Equestrian Patterns for 18 inch Dolls. Take part in a virtual equestrian experience with all of the “girls” who model for REINWEAR.

ESCARAMUZA CHARRA / ADELITA / FIESTA COSTUME

  Today is the best day ever! You and your team members have been practicing for hours and hours and today is the day that you will perform the escaramuza or skirmish. You love the speed and excitement of performing your choreographed ride in front the enthusiastic crowd. 

  Your special escaramuza performance has been an added attraction to a charreada or scheduled in ferias amistosas(friendly fairs), and formal competitions on the state, regional and national level many times.  You are proud to be sanctioned by the Mexican Charro Federation. The official contests require strict adherence to complex rules and regulations that govern every aspect of the event, from a code for acceptable dress and tack to exact judging and scoring procedures.

  Your escaramuza team is composed of eight riders who wear matching outfits. You have the option of wearing either the identical traditional full-skirted Adelita style dresses or a fitted skirt and jacket ensemble similar to standard charro attire. You really prefer the Adelita-style costume. It is so beautiful. Likewise, your wide-brimmed sombreros, the customary charro head gear, must be identical in color, style and decorative detail.

  Your escaramuza routine is made up of a dozen individual exercises presented in uninterrupted succession. The presentation runs an average of 10 minutes and is performed throughout at a full gallop, with all of the riders mounted on charro-style sidesaddles. You love riding to the backdrop of lively Mexican music that adds to the rhythm and drama of the thrilling string of geometric movements. Heart-stopping crosses and quick turns are executed with great precision to avoid accidents and minimize point deductions for loss of synchronization and symmetry. Your team is the best—on horseback and in the barn.

  Your beautiful Adelita-style costume set includes complete step-by-step sewing instructions, fabric suggestions, yardage requirements, cutting layout, decorative options and pattern pieces for: Blouse, Petticoat, Skirt, Sash, Bloomers, Sombrero, Boot tops, Shawl and Hair Bow. 

(Doll and shoes worn under the Boot Tops are not included)

About Us

Tack created using the REINWEAR NATIVE ARABIAN COSTUME FOR RIDER & HORSE.

Karen Hummel Kinsley (Founder & CEO) is a freelance costume designer and equestrian. She has designed costumes for many venues including Off-Broadway, regional theaters, national tours, museums, colleges and universities. Born and raised in Montana, she started out as a western rider. As a theatrical costume designer, she moved to New York City and, ironically, in the heart of Manhattan she learned hunter seat equitation and dressage. For many years she rode at the legendary Claremont Riding Academy located on West 89th Street. She enjoyed many holiday rides through Central Park that included a stop at Tavern-on-the-Green for a cup of mulled wine for the riders and a tray of carrots for the horses. For many years she served as co-director of the Claremont Drill Team and enjoyed sharing Claremont’s “dancing horses” with audiences in Manhattan, Long Island and New Jersey. 

        In 1995, Karen founded a company featuring equestrian-theme gifts and crafts called COUNTER CANTER CREATIONS. When her daughters fell in love with their 18-inch dolls, she couldn’t find equestrian patterns that had the style and proportion that looked like “real” riding clothes. REINWEAR was born in 2001.

         Both Claremont and the Tavern-on-the Green are gone, but Karen’s love and appreciation of horses, their owners and their riders continues. These patterns are dedicated to the girls, moms, aunts, godmothers, grandmothers and dear friends who have never stopped dreaming about horses. 

        When you are sitting behind the sewing machine creating these lovely garments, stop for a moment and let your your imagination take you for a ride with wind in your face and your heart in your hands. You’ll feel fantastic!
