This outfit is called a cycling suit. These garments were worn by women when they were on their bicycle. The pants of this garment are so loose fitting it almost resembles a skirt. There is a piece the wearer could attach to the buttons on the front of the pants to make it look like a skirt. A matching jacket completed the ensemble. This American cycling suit was made around 1896-1898 out of wool, leather, silk, linen, and cotton.
