Rose's Boarding Suit is the height of 1912 fashion. It even includes a hobble skirt, so called since it slimmed at the ankles and women took small steps while wearing it. A long stride with clomping feet was not feminine for the time! Anyway, the Boarding Suit is a delightful three-piece outfit consisting of the skirt, jacket, and a high-collared white shirt, called a waist. You can also see the longer, leaner silhouette with this outfit.

I feel like she's blown about, but something about the skirt reminds me of a wheelchair.
