I like the shape of this dress for Mrs. Dickson's costume. It's simple and has a bell shape. It's not really emphasizing any part of her body but it's still feminine.

Afternoon dress, ca. 1843; cotton  Metropolitan Museum of Art C.I.45.68.28; Gift of Art Worker’s Club, 1945  The extensive ruching on the bodice of this dress is similar to the more subdued gathering often used at the center front of both day and evening dresses of the period.  At the same time, the large tucks on the skirt and the light materials look forward to the lingerie dresses of the early twentieth century.
