"The Bicycle Suit", caricature from the Punch magazine (1895).
"The Bicycle Suit", cartoon from Punch, 1895.
At the time, this type of attire was a new-fangled innovation which it was only considered acceptable for women to wear while bicycle riding (and many old-fashioned people would have considered the style too unacceptably masculinized for even that purpose). The idea that women could wear such clothes in public for any other reason than riding a bicycle seemed ridiculous...
Transcription: Gertrude. "My dear Jessie, what on earth is that Bicycle Suit for?" Jessie. "Why, to wear, of course." Gertrude. "But you haven't got a Bicycle!" Jessie. "No: but I've got a Sewing Machine!"
