Long skirt shortened, divided for bicycle use
Cycle-hack: A three-paneled long skirt has been shortened and divided for ease when riding a bicycle.
The garment was originally sewn as a three-paneled, gathered long skirt (pattern in upper left.) But I was discouraged from wearing it by its sheer impracticality: The skirt was heavy and when I sat in rolling office chairs, I constantly ran it over.
The solution: re-cut the skirt using the “skort” pattern in upper right. With fabric left-over, I also made a coordinating hat.
