Hawthorne & Heaney Does Dressage Costumes

Once in a while, we get asked to produce something a bit out of the ordinary and this is one such project that ticks all the boxes for us; embroidery, heraldry, animals. We have been working on a piece for a dressage costume for a ‘Nutcracker’ themed performance for which we produced a scarlet red saddle cloth to finish off the outfit.

The draft was then refashioned in the right fabrics, a mixture of heavy calico and melton military cloth with a gold lace trim.

We also machine embroidered this HH monogram in raised gold thread which was then applied.
