I found this in a Pinterest search. This photo is supposed to be at the Bibliothèque nationale de France. Also posted to the Designed by Lucile Albumette here.

1913 Robe d'après midi par Lucile (BnF) From Pinterest search

The person wearing this will be in serious trouble if she has to run for her life, as in a fire. Her hair is bobbed in 20s style. The skirt has a vertically draped upper segment and a horizontally draped lower segment ending in a short train.
