The upper part of the figure is in a similar position to the figure on the extreme right of 'The Hours' (1871-82, Sheffield City Art Gallery), although the drapery and the position of the legs differ considerably. A drawing of 'The Hours' was prepared in 1865, for which a number of studies exist, and this may be possibly connected with them.
