We are finalising a collection of downloadable open source PDF sewing pattern packs produced during the Bikes & Bloomers research project.
The patterns are inspired by patents lodged by inventive British women in the 1890s for convertible cycle wear.
The series includes:
– Pulley system skirt
– Buttoned fold-up skirt, jacket & bloomer suit
– Waist gathered bubble skirt
– Skirt/cape combination
– Side buttoned ruched skirt
– 3 x cycling bloomers – full, narrow, tailored
