Princess Charlotte Augusta of Wales

From the LIFE magazine archives; detail-enhanced by gogm.

The Napoleonic wars are over and dress is evolving. Charlotte's dress has an A-line skirt, meaning stays beneath, but an Empire waist. The dress also has puffed sleeves and, briefly, off-floor (maxi-skirt) length revealing shoes and hosiery. The hem is decorated with a pair of rouleaux.
