The London Tweed Run is always something special. This year was no exception. And I made the entire costume. The 1890s bloomers had to be tailored to fit the penny and I pieced together all my left over Dashing Tweeds, which took a while but it was worth it. The blouse was borrowed  from the Pease sisters costume and the printed neck tie, complete with Alice’s lovely artworks, from the Frances Henrietta Muller costume.

This pic shows some of the tucks needed to make 1890s bloomers work on a penny – I channelled my inner Vivienne Westwood to twist the bloom towards to cuff and mid outer seams. It worked well – gave enough knee movement but kept the material away from the spokes.

I was still, of course, still sewing on the morning of the ride.

I am quite good at adapting 1890s patterns these days
