This is a DIGITAL sewing pattern for an Edwaridan bicycle skirt, from around 1900.

This skirt is designed after a typical extant ankle-length bicycle skirt, from around 1900.
The skirt has a deep box pleat at the center back as well as two pleats on each side providing the width needed sitting on a bicycle. The skirt can be worn with or without a corset.
The waistband is divided into two parts; front, and back. The skirt is closed along the left side with buttons, the right side button tab has no other function than serving as a fashion detail mirroring the left side with a hidden pocket underneath.
The hem has a facing from fashion fabric.
Topstitching along the skirt seams, appliques and rows along the hemline, as well as edge stitching the waistband with a thicker thread in matching color creates another fashion detail.

Also suitable for steampunk costumes.

Lovely skirt with nice details

I made this skirt in a nice sturdy cotton twill for a recent event and got many compliments on the look. The style lines and details are a nice touch.
The pattern went together nicely with every seam lining up without issue. However, the sewing instructions were a bit crytpice when it came to sewing up the side seam around the pocket opening. The picture is not really helpful. I figured the setup out in the end and it made sense and the result is nice and neat. The instructions also include a mention of interfacing but at no point is there any mention which pieces should be interfaced and where.
The pocket piece is generously sized and holds a modern phone without issue. However, I might redo the pocket pice and anchor it to the waistband as a heavy phone distorts the style lines a bit.


It is difficult for me to understand the instructions on how to sew the side piece #2 with the back piece #3. The drawing does not make it very clear. It is true that language is a problem.


Excellent pattern. Easy from start (downloading) to finish (skirt) . No difficulty with the instructions.
