1792 Maria Feodorovna by Jean-Louis Voille (location unknown to gogm)

This 1792 Voille portrait shows Maria Feodorovna wearing a vest-bodice, similar to that shown a few pictures back without diamonds in her coiffure, over a white central bodice that matches her petticoat, barely visible at bottom. This leads me to conclude the white satiny material is part of the bodice and not her chemise, although the lace frills may be chemise trimming. Her sleeves reach to her elbows.
