(This one is listed under costumes for "Misses, Girls, and Children," but I see no particular reason an adult woman couldn't wear it as well. And it's one of the rare costumes that specifies eyeglasses!)
A dove-gray kilted skirt, with panel of black on the sides. A closely fitting black bodice reaching only to the waist, opening over a low-cut dove-gray waistcoat, and having angel or wing sleeves lined with dove-gray. A white tucked and ruffled shirt front; a deep, fluted ruff about the neck and standing out well about the lower edge of the bodice; long black gloves, black stockings, and slippers with bows; eyeglasses, and a high black hat with pointed crown and a closely-rolled brim.
