(Another delightfully impractical "work" outfit much like the ridiculous Edwardian shepherdess. I particularly like the bow on the rake! Click the image to enlarge.)
...a white satin skirt covered with a lattice work of light green rbbon, flowers clustering at the hem and brought up the skirt. The black velvet bodice has a lisse fichu and sleeves tied with green and pink ribbon as is also the rake. A bunch of roses appear on the right shoulder, and the large hat is trimmed with pink and green ribbons.
