Brushed Twill Convertible Riding Skirt - Brown

Annie Oakley would have loved this split skirt ideal for riding. Full cut, and made of the softest brushed twill so it's comfortable to wear but full of style. Features a double row of metallic buttons that hold a fold of cloth open for riding. But when you want a full skirt look, just open the pleat. Imported. 100% cotton. Dry clean or machine wash cold. Availabe in sizes 4-20.

Medium: Wool Date: 1902 Country: USA Credit: Museum Purchase During the late nineteenth century, women bicyclists wore bloomers or divided skirts, which many found shocking. They were not accepted outside of the sportswear context, and The New York Times warned that divided skirts were “merely a resting-place on the road to trousers.” In Paris, bicycling costumes were a fashionable fad, but women risked arrest if caught wearing them while not in the presence of a bicycle.
