CONVERTIBLE CYCLE WEAR
SEWING PATTERNS

#3 THREE PIECE CYCLING SUIT

This cycling costume is inspired by Henrietta Muller’s 1896 patent #8766. It is an unusual patent because the inventor addresses an entire cycling suit. Her three-part design features a tailored jacket, a long A-line skirt that can be raised in height via loops sewn into the hem that catch at buttons on the waistband and an all-in-one undergarment (like a vintage onesie), which combines a blouse and bloomer.

This pattern is approx. UK 12 (minimal instructions provided)
To assemble pattern, print pages at ‘actual size’, follow layout, match triangles at edges, tape and cut out
