Abstract or Description

This cycling costume comes from the Bikes and Bloomers research. It is inspired by Mary and Sarah Pease’s 1896 patent #13,832. It is one of the more radical designs of the time because the skirt completely comes away from the body. A full circle skirt converts into a cape – the waistband turns into a stylish high ruche collar. A gathering ribbon secures it at the waist and collar. If made in a light fabric, the skirt/cape can be rolled up and attached to the handlebars.
