La Robe de Noce

La robe de noce (The Wedding Dress).
Louis Gallait, 1873.
Oil on canvas.
Musées Royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique,
Brussels, Belgium.

I have been trying to find some work of Art History to explain this painting. She's sewing the wedding dress referenced in the work's title, but I think she's been interrupted, mid-stitch as it were. By whom? She's not looking so happy about it. The thimble is on the correct finger.
