1908 Princess Cecilie by Caspar Ritter

Ritter portrays Cecilie wearing an evening dress with a bottom bertha, satin over-skirt, and a rose and bow ornamented under-skirt under a wrap. Beneath the under-skirt made of tulle, organza, or similar gauzy material is yet another layer. She wears something will elbow length flared sleeves, I cannot tell, and her waistline is obscured.
