Day dress, US, Kent State (Old Rags states is which it clearly is not. Sleeve too narrow, skirt has train.

A jaunty, sensible woman’s outfit of the early 1870s designed for boating or seaside walking. A hemline just at the ankle indicates a garment intended for walking outdoors. The style of the dress has been inspired by the colours and stripes of sailors' uniforms. It is made of cotton, so it is easily washed and dried. Despite its practical use, the ensemble still incorporates the details of fashionable dress, with an overskirt in front and a bustle worn underneath at the back.

This is a nice example of an early bustle day dress worn for promenading and visiting. Skirt decoration in this period was often achieved by using two separate skirts, with an overskirt being the main source of decoration and the puffing for the bustle

Don't love the skirt or its rows of lace, but I do like the restrained shape of the bustle.
