As Mabel Waring takes off her cloak and steps into the drawing room of Clarissa Dalloway, she immediately realizes that something is not right: her pale-yellow silk dress, which she has had specially made for the occasion, is clearly old-fashioned, dowdy and out of place. Everyone seems to be looking at her in dismay or mocking her appearance. Crushed at once by her insecurity, Mabel is pervaded by a sense of self-loathing, and feels utter revulsion for the social world she has tried so hard to impress.Written in 1924 and perhaps intended for inclusion in Mrs Dalloway, a book Woolf was working on at the time, ‘The New Dress’ is here accompanied by most of the short stories she published in her lifetime and six other posthumously published narratives that share the milieu and some of the characters of her celebrated novel. Together, they reveal their author as one of the finest practitioners in the field of short fiction.
