This would be a functional dress. The long skirt would protect her legs. With short or long sleeves she could make it for the spring or fall. The pockets would hold those odds and ends she seemed to collect over the day. The short sleeve has some interesting button detail so it wouldn't be a total bore to sew and wear. Yes, she would give it a try.
