In the Edwardian era, 1890s to 1900s, women did not wear pants. At least they did not wear women’s pants. What they could wear were sport clothes designed like oversized bloomers which later in the 1910s turned into breeches (knicker pants) and riding jodhpurs. Some overalls and workwear trousers were also made during WW1. See the history of these in vintage gym clothes and bicycle outfits. For the authentic Edwardian outfit or a modern Edwardian style these new bloomers, split skirts, breeches, riding pants, shorts and sewing patterns are available.
