My favorite gift last birthday was a bright blue Electra Bicycle.
I mean, I have always liked biking...it helps accentuate my carefree spirit. I like to ride with friends and family. It is good old fashioned fresh-air fun.
I even put a basket and a bell on the bike...which can be a little annoying from time to time.
But what I have come to realize is that as gas prices continue to rise...biking is a growing mode of transportation. Bike lanes are going in everywhere! Including my own city. It is a revolution.
So in my quest to promote this revolution...I have designed a fabric. I painted a picture of my own bike. I had it made into a piece of Kona cotton fabric. I made it in two styles...Large bike and small. And my friend Peggy Giannageli worked with me on design and did ALL the sewing. We made a wrap-skirt and a fitted skirt with pockets. Once I throw on a pair of bike shorts for underneath, it is very easy to ride the bike. OR if biking in the skirt doesn't appeal to you, it makes for a great piece to wear to a city council meeting discussing bike lanes. Or how about a lunch date? A picnic? Ahhhhh...
Want to go for a bike ride?
Let's do it!
