Woman’s aesthetic or reform dress and bodice in wool with a ribbed weave, Great Britain, 1892-1895. 

The dress is a pinafore style, worn over a matching chocolate-brown silk satin bodice with a high braided gilt collar. Photos © Victoria and Albert Museum, London. Mrs Herbert Roberts, Lady Clwyd, is seen wearing the dress, which was probably from her trousseau, in George Clausen’s 1894 portrait, now located at Walker Art Gallery, National Museums Liverpool (photo via BBC Your Paintings).
