Here's my visual (and postmodern) interpretation of Muriel Spark's “peasant dressing”:
Deidre Lloyd had been the first woman to dress up as a peasant whom Sandy had ever met, and peasant women were to be fashionable for the next thirty years or more. She wore a fairly long full-gathered dark skirt, a bright green blouse with the sleeves rolled up, a necklace of large painted wooden beads and gipsy-looking earrings. Round her waist was a bright red wide belt. She wore dark stockings and sandals of dark green suede. In this, and various other costumes of similar kind, Deidre was depicted on canvas in different parts of the studio.
