Barbara is wearing a Victorian dress in a green and black toned embroidered fabric. The dress has a high neck edged in lace and buttoned at the back.
The sleeves are gathered into a long buttoned cuff and also have a lace edging. The skirt has a draped apron at the front and a bustle at the back. The bustle is made to appear larger with the use of a specially shaped cushion. The bustle is lined with horse hair fabric to help it hold its shape.
Laced up black boots are worn under the skirt. The black hat is trimmed with a green velvet band and flower. Black gloves and black bag complete the outfit.
