Cycle wear sewing patterns

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
