This is fancy material for a ride. The temptation to enhance the posterior is a persistent theme in fashion.The bodice has a triangular front section like a pelisse. The back has a triangular section above where the skirt material is gathered. The collar is very wide - a dominating feature. The sleeves appear to be separate, attaching at a ring cuff at the bases of the puffed sections.
