CONVERTIBLE CYCLE WEAR
#2 CYCLING SEMI-SKIRT
This cycling costume pattern is inspired by Julia Gill’s 1895 patent #6794. It is for a long A-line skirt with a decorative lower flounce, under which a cord is threaded through a series of rings. To convert the skirt, the wearer lifts the hem to the waist, creating a semi-skirt, and uses the cord to secure the material. The lower flounce, when made from similar material to the jacket, creates a stylish double peplum.
