Great pose, movement and feeling.
Does it need some more dark round the basket shaddow?
Are legs a little too short? The hunched pose makes it difficult to be sure but the hand and knee dont look quite right to me. Arnie

Thanks so much for these useful suggestions!

Yes, the basket shadow is not dark enough.

I thought the hand might not pass muster yet, but didn't notice the knee.... will fix that!

I also plan to show that the skirt is outside her legs, not vice versa.

Does she require another sandal?
It doesn't appear that the basket load is central, but is off to one side on her shoulder and arm - would make it harder to carry
