Cycle wear sewing patterns

We have released a collection of downloadable open source PDF sewing pattern packs produced during the Bikes & Bloomers research project.

Six patterns (comprising a total of 9 garments) are inspired by patents lodged by inventive British women in the 1890s for convertible cycle wear.

Download the FREE PDF pattern packs here.

The series includes:

#1 Pulley Cycling Skirt – by Alice Bygrave
#2 Cycling Semi-Skirt – by Julia Gill
#3 Cycling Suit – by Henrietta Muller
#4 Cycling Skirt/Cape – by the Pease sisters
#5 Side-Button Cycling skirt – by Mary Ward
#6 Cycling bloomers – I Tailored and II Full

We look forward to seeing what sewing cyclists make with them. Please share your creations with us!
