This is a classic Mad Scientist style Coat that buttons up the shoulder and at the side, with left chest pocker and right hip pocket, adjustment tab in the back. These are actually unisex in cut, squarish rather than a woman's fitted garment. For a steampunk twist, some alternate color schemes to the plain old white on white mad scientist coat.
Be fashionable in your secret laboratory/dungeon lair!

During the late Victorian era, there was a movement by woman campaigning for 'Dress Reform' so that the modern woman's wardrobe would better suit her active lifestyle. The most notable garment innovation resulting from the 'Rational Wear' movement was probably the split-skirts, such as riding skirts, peddle pushers, etc.
This outfit features a pair of wide-legged wrap pants, with bib-front (sailor style) with covered buttons in Brown polycotton poplin with white pinstripe. The sleeveless blouse is based on an 1898 bodice design and is done in this fabulous white and gold damask cotton.
