Hey folks! Guess what I'm trying to make? This dress has a pattern available at the Marquise.de fashion history site  -- I have to admit I'm not having much luck so far following this said pattern, but I'm sorely in need of some new outfits and have loads of fabric ready, so I'll probably wind up with... something.  This gown is a pattern put out by the Rational Dress Society, whose mission was to reform the uncomfortable fashions of the Victorian era. "The Rational Dress Society protests against the introduction of any fashion in dress that either deforms the figure, impedes the movements of the body, or in any way tends to injure the health. It protests against the wearing of tightly-fitting corsets; of high-heeled shoes; of heavily-weighted skirts, as rendering healthy exercise almost impossible; and of all tie down cloaks or other garments impeding on the movements of the arms. It protests against crinolines or crinolettes of any kind as ugly and deforming…. requires all to be dressed healthily, comfortably, and beautifully, to seek what conduces to birth, comfort and beauty in our dress as a duty to ourselves and each other." So said their mission statement. With this in mind it sounds like a suitable gown for modern wear. I think it's even meant to be worn without a corset, but with a tight lining instead...
