Panniers are no longer de rigueur? Oh well! They'll never be missed. Countess Skavronskaya wears a dress with a substantial, but unsupported, skirt and what may be just one under-garment that provides her modesty piece and cuffs. Maybe she wears an olive green under-garment conformal with a deep blue over-garment.
