This thread puts me in mind of the short story Last Ride with the Glory Girls by Libba Bray. It's a steampunk story set on another world as far as I can figure. Very Wild West feel to it. I think both the dress and skirt would fit wonderfully in the story. Hat and duster...Jewlery that really is the time device.
Women and cats will do as they please. Men and dogs had better get used to it.
