Fashion Plate Fridays: Walking Dress

Here is an interesting plate I found on Wikimedia Commons recently. It's a reasonably simple natural form gown, but the dark blue color with magenta trim livens things up a bit. I'm not sure, but perhaps the flower motifs on the hem and collar of the jacket would be embroidered. I love how uselessly tiny her parasol is!
