Most images of Princess Louise are in her album, but this image is here because 1868 was a transition year in fashion.
The joys of wearing crinolines had worn thin by 1868 so dresses became somewhat less voluminous. Also, the vee waistline was replaced by a natural waistline as shown here in this photo of Princess Louise. This photo probably comes from the same set as this photo and this one.
