I have a dress pretty much like the one in this painting. I bought it at the beginning of winter last year and when I got it in the post, I wasn't quite sure whether I'd keep it or not. It was a lot thicker than it looked in the online catalogue. It's 100% wool and fully lined. I never thought I'd be able to wear it, but since January, we've experienced sub-zero temperatures quite a few times, thanks to the great crazy British weather. Now I'm really pleased that I decided to keep my dress.
