Let’s twist a non-sewing topic into a sewing one again, shall we? 😆
As you might have guessed, I love cycling. I’m in no way the sporty kind, I’m actually more of a couch potato, or a sewing potato for that matter. But since regular exercise is part of any weight loss program… 🙄 But the thing is, I am actually quite girly. And I love wearing skirts. Summer, winter, doesn’t matter: gimme a skirt and I’ll wear it gladly! During my vacation in France, I’ve often found myself a bit out-of-place wearing my cycling shorts while visiting fancy castles or enjoying a fine dinner at a restaurant. Yesterday, I thought to myself: why aren’t there any cycling skirts/skorts around?
The reality is, they do exist, I’ve just never seen any in the Netherlands. A quick search on the Internet has confirmed that they are available, in the US for example, but I refuse to pay 50$ + high costs for shipping ordering a cycling skirt from an online store!
I am not on a quest: finding patterns that will lead me to the perfectly fitting cycling skirt for next summer’s vacation. I think I could combine Jalie’s cycling shorts pattern with this skirt pattern, only a tad longer. I’m not ordering anything for now (yeah right!) as I want to see how much weight I will lose in the course of the year and so on, but I am curious about experimenting!
To be continued!
